I've been dreaming of Jalal for years. I wake up, bitter, depressed, and cold, and again the reflection of the person who has never had the honor of "being a Jalal" looks back at me in the mirror with disdain. I dedicate this film with respect to the Jalals of my country, to the ordinary people who seek pain in others eyes and have never been reaching out to the governments, statesmen, and powerful bodies for help, to people who have never tolerated the pain of hunger in the eyes of others and have never had a peaceful sleep. I live in a country where God has bestowed upon it the blessings of abundance and wealth, but alas! Many people are deprived of it. "Wednesday, May 9" is a critique of the society and the way it is managed. It is a tribute to the human beings who feel committed to the society and suffer. In essence, the film is both a critique and a praise of human beings.
