Director Statement

The film uses a specific visual design in cinematography, acting, scene, and costume, to get a rare atmosphere to narrate an unusual "expectancy" of a mother and a father who are waiting for their dead son who had gone to war. Everything's felt dead now.
The death toll of a war has never been real; Every bullet kills more than just one man.
