Experiencing Interruptions?

When the Ice Melts

<When the Ice Melts> is a short film which depicts the current societal syndrome for the MZ generation in which the definition of friendship and comfort zone have been merely vague these days; whereas, the film somewhat criticizes and mocks the subtle relationship formed by Social Network Service(SNS), instead by story-telling the unstable protagonist, Yuri which happens to be a paronym of glass that could be easily breakable.
