Back then, I didn't know anything about myself or others.

Director Statement

This movie addresses the concepts of "certainty" and "uncertainty".

As we go through our lives, the truth behind the feelings and actions of other people remain largely a mystery.

We all have those moments when the thought crosses our mind: "I wonder what that person was really thinking?".
These thoughts can strike at any time. It could happen while we're still waving goodbye to someone, or it could be years later. No matter how intimate a relationship we forge with people in life, we can never truly know that which lies at the core of their behavior.

The only thing that is certain is that we and other people "existed" together in a particular place.

This movie captures those uncertain, yet somehow certain, emotions that lay hidden away in our hearts.
