Three days before their journey to Italy, Hamed becomes comatose because of his unknown illness and it shocks the team tremendously. Hamed needs an organ transplant. The other four members try to solve the problem concerning Hamed and their journey in their own ways. The crisis reveals layers of them in the past and present, which have been unknown till now in a normal situation, and it leads to new decision making and judgement.

 Director’s Motivation :
In the third world, some people sacrifice everything to solve their own problems and to get personal gain. It may lead to death but it does not matter to them, what matters is the goal. Besides such people, there are those who try to save someone else with love despite facing any unkindness or hardship.It does not matter to them either, what matters is the goal.

Confrontation of the two groups and their life beside one another creates a strange society,full of adventures. To depict this confrontation was a good reason make the film Yellow.

 Director’s Statement :
The contrast between love and logic,feeling and wisdom,is a hard challenge for humans.
When you look at humans carefully, you face a complicated creature.
Judging and decision making is a hard and strange challenge for the contemporary humans.
