Participants were contacted via social media or email and given various prompts by director Pirooz Kalayeh. These ranged from creating mini films, conducting self-interviews, reading poetry, and filming common activities, such as observing nature, filming apartment views, and walking through neighborhoods. The film includes personal accounts from first responders, such as ER physician, Dr. Elizabeth Mitchell, poems by Chinese poet Lu Jian, and confessionals from Cincinnati, Ohio to Tehran, Iran.
