Director Statement

what we believe as truth is collapsed one day, what else can we truly trust with?
Most of time when we choose to believe one thing is not because we truly believe it, but we dare not doubt. Or even we are not yet ready to accept the dark side that beyond our imagination. Based on Taiwan had suffered lots of disasters these years, like the food safety issue, and the “black-box” operation et cetera -- those cases had aroused great controversy from the public. As one of a member, I wish this movie, by using the metaphor, will prompt the audience's’ retrospection towards the system and current situation. The two teenagers will stand as “hope” in the movie -- helped to reveal the problem in an interesting way.
