Experiencing Interruptions?

BADA

A woman is suffering melancholy due to her career break from childbirth and nurturing.

One day, upon seeing her dead goldfish, she sees herself – a person who was unable to fulfill her dream of being a swimmer and ended up living a dry and dead life every day – in the goldfish that died inside a small fishbowl without ever being able get out to the wide ocean.

This puts a crack in her everyday life.
The crack spreads, and the gently swaying waves of her emotion turns into a huge tsunami and overwhelms her.

Later that day, in an aquarium with her son, she realizes that she isn’t much different from the fish in a water tank.
