Plot
The film begins with Ali’s accident. Ali has lost his memory. With Ali’s confusion, all the characters of the story find themselves in a state of chaos: this chaos being the chaos of daily life, of life itself. The mystery of a precious ring passing from one to another with each claiming to be the owner, the distant story of a robbery, and a mock police investigation add even more flavor to the story.
But there is a parallel story within “Mommy, I’m scared”.  This is the story of the human body. This story, which in real life exists in every human body regardless of revolutions, incidents, or intrigues, comes to the forefront in the film. It outshines intrigue. It shadows the eyes and ears of the human bodies observing the incidents in the film. With his or her illness, routine, posture, eating and drinking habit and body language, everyone in the film becomes a lead character in this universal theme. In this film, the language of the body speaks just as loud as the events and the characters. Bodies cracking. Breaking. Being snipped. Bleeding. Aching. Healing. Nails growing. Hair thinning. Teeth rotting. The inner organs show their bloody faces through x-rays, ultrasound screens and blood analysis reports. People cry. Yawn. Sneeze. Walk. Run. Kneel. Climb.
