Director's statement

I have no professional education background relating to films and have never shot anything before except for two minutes when I served as log keeper in a TV crew. This feature film debut was completed with scarce funding. Most of the crews are also non-professionals. In order to save money, I served multiple roles and tried my best, because I know that if I stay put and wait for opportunities to come, the fire in my heart will be extinguished. But I feel very happy to be able to make films.

Thank you, and thanks for everything!
