Director's statement

The triviality and repetition of real-life force every modern person to become an aphasic person living in a closed space, and the indifference and alienation become more and more prominent in the anxiety of hopeless communication. Therefore, the work reveals the inner cry of people suffering from spiritual crisis through the fiction of a world in the underground parking lot. In the face of difficulties, the helpless evolution of ‘hello’ eager to speak becomes hopeless communication – ‘Hell’.
