Suicide Watchman Poster


The Ministry of Internal Affairs issues a nationwide circular in order to prevent the excessive increase in suicide cases in recent months. According to the circular; neighborhood guards will take turns waiting on the bridges to prevent suicides, and the guards will be rewarded by the ministry for every person they rescue from now on.

Rasheed is assigned to a deserted, nameless, collapsing bridge in a village far from the city center, which no one crosses except sheep. The people around Rasheed make his place of duty the object of ridicule. When this is the case, the deepest principle in human nature; he desire to be appreciated is stimulated.
