Director's statement

Zhang Chong: Countless people have been trying to break the Forth Wall since its birth in the 19th century. These endeavors played a huge part in stage drama’s revolution from avant garde to pop. The Forth Wall is also trying to break the wall in which the wall is not only between the camera and the character but also blocking us from our true life, memory, and future.

Zhang Bo: During a trip to Africa, we had a wonderful mutual experience facing the primal earth. Everyone was stunned by its beauty and all of our anxiety vanished because everything we felt seemed so unreal. That experience helped us in a subtle but magic way. So, we created this story trying to help people get out of the plight of their hearts.
