Director Statement

Making short fictions is a way to tell small stories about life for me. I prefer the short film
because of its form which is to tell many things in a short time.
There are so many coincidences in life. This film is about a coincidence which is happy and sad at the same time. Sometimes we are at tangent positions in life.
