Director Statement

This is a story about "adolescence dilemma". At the time of approaching adulthood, we need to have the courage to smash a world, and the courage to fight against nothingness before the reconstruction of a new world. Our story was born in these fragments. The plight of adolescence requires you to realize that you are a person who has eaten hydrilla by mistake, waiting for the next replacement alone, because you are unable to face the rapid decay and waste of the world, so you flee the world to create a new world, but the goldfish escaped from the broken fish tank, You can never swim to its paradise. When the world without taboos opens to you, you will find that there are red lights behind the end of the road, and there are still barriers outside the world.
