It was written very professionally, and she surprised me with her ingenuity in writing this kind of work, especially since it is widely known. She is a serious business director who discusses thorny issues in society, and I have seen that it is a job that depends mainly on situational comedy. , but as some comic works depend on the casting of affixes, and not in the series “Sweet Dreams”, I found that the sword appears from the same situation, and I wanted to get out of my siege in a number of roles seriously in the previous period.

The filming of the movie, and the character stayed in the memory, which helped me to extract it in this work, and I see if it was possible to present this work in a tragic way by this character, but I chose to It is presented in a comic form, because it is not necessary that every person with a disability or a health crisis should lead a miserable life, cry over the rubble, and there are many who deal with their health crisis coexist with transparency and clarity.

In the series or movie “Bakiza and Zagloul.
