Director Statement

People's sense of loneliness is often wrapped in an unrealistic fantasy of pursuing beautiful things. Tearing apart this fantasy, real life is often fragmented and exhausted. There is always a moment when people want to escape from the mundane and unpleasant situation, grasping the feeling of heartbeats and intoxication at a certain moment. Starting from a brief encounter between a man and a woman, I want to tell the story of how, under the combined influence of passion, prejudice, reality, and fantasy, a man and a woman fell in love by chance and eventually missed out.

The film uses a large number of car shots, creating a sense of suspense and distortion in time and space caused by the interplay of reality and fantasy, trying to capture a irrational fleeting moment.
