RAUF is the story of searching under the shade of a war and tough nature conditions , at the age of 11, Rauf finds himself in a big platonic love, in an effort to delight the girl whom he love in a world which loses the colour even in the daylight. Pink is the hue of our story, loves that are dreamed to be experienced, sleeps that are waken up with tranquality, fraternity and amity. Therefore, Rauf seeks ‘pink’ everywhere.

Those pink flowers are the symbol of a standing against the world which fades to black progressively, rebellion of wishes that don’t eventuate and the light which is behind all the lives that are inchoate
