"Arabana" is the connection of space with children and their safety. The city of Dubai, where "Arabana" was filmed, has many large-scaled villas (much like the house in the film) that almost resemble farmhouses. In these vast spaces, it becomes tough for parents to monitor their very young kids all day long. Parents feel safe keeping them within the parameter of the villa, not knowing that dangers can lurk within. The film sheds light on child abuse - the type of abuse that is diffcult for parents to detect and children to recognize. The film depicts the journey of the child as she plays in the backyard and seeks the attention of the gardener, while the mother is preoccupied. The child mistakens the attention for friendship and the mother does not suspect her house being of any danger to her child ... but "Arabana" proves otherwise.
