Director Statement

This film mainly wants to deliver an emotion. The emotion is suddenly triggered or released in the midst of a superficial calm, rather than in front of everyone. I think this kind of unpredictable collapse and escape is a way of expressing the emotions implied by the youth of today in the midst of the information explosion and the meaninglessness of the rat race.
The bearer of the emotion is a young and confused gambler, but who says that the majority of young people in our current society are not gamblers? The information explosion makes it easy for us to learn about all sorts of areas. However, it is difficult to discover ourselves and find our id. Our own emotions and needs that comes from ourselves is hard to say. With this difference, I believed that every dicision made by a confused young person is a gamble.
