Private Project

Highway to you

Nam and Diem live together without family support. Diem had an accident and was sent home from the hospital. Diem was still in too much pain, she asked Nam to buy sleeping pills so that Diem could commit suicide. Nam carries a pillow of Diem and always holds the pillow in his lap.
Nam went to an unattended pharmacy, and found on the table there was a plastic bag containing the medicine he wanted to buy. Nam took out the medicine bag. Nam went out and was stopped by Kien's pharmacy owner. Nam hoped that Kien could let Nam buy a medicine bag, but the medicine bag Nam wanted to buy only had the shell.
Nam quickly left and forgot Diem's pillow, causing Kien to run after him and give it to Nam.
Kien invited Nam to smoke to share Nam's heart and hope to comfort Nam somewhat. Kien knew about Nam's problem and not only didn't stop him, but also gave Nam a bag of sleeping pills.
Nam ran home, carrying a pillow and two sleeping pills.
