Director Statement

Sexual crimes always leave unforgettable memories for their victims, which persist and become deeply rooted even as they age, particularly when the victims are minors. Sexual offenses can create an endless cycle. Beyond the terror and fear that permeate society, there are other impacts that affect the mental well-being of these victims. Channeling one's desires onto others in a similar manner, whether driven by resentment or purely by urges shaped by the past, perpetuates a damaging cycle. Through this film, the audience is not compelled to address the issue in a specific way; rather, it is hoped that the film sheds light on the reality of such matters and encourages open discussion for the sake of our children's future.
