Director's statement

Everyone makes mistakes, but not everyone has the opportunity to recover. And when you do get such an opportunity, you eventually find it is not a gift of destiny.

Some people want to go back to the past and change their own fate, but they do not know the source of their mistakes. Our protagonist Wan Jin is such a person. So it is not enough to just return to the past. He has to re-recognize himself from different people’s views, including his friends and lover. In the desperate situation, he tries to make up for the mistakes he has ignored, but his life gets even more confusing in the prison of time.

God gives you a choice but tells you there is no choice to start over in life. The only thing you can choose is living in the present. And at every moment, you have countless versions of your future.
