Director Statement

Fathers and mothers are the mainstays of our lives. They have gone through difficult days to get us to where we are. It is we who must choose the right path.
Let us be with them as they were in every moment of our lives.
Be kind as they were.
Let us not make them sad and fill their hearts with joy.
It can be said that I made this film based on a kind of reality and documentary.
Based on almost the same experience I had in living with my grandmother.
I dedicate this film to all devoted mothers, their good children, and my grandmother.
