The short film documents the experiences of the protagonist ‘I’ on his quest to find his self. All scenes are the traces where childhood memories and grown-up reality resonate, the anxiety in the state where all connections have become denaturalized; it is the cultural clashes in the Renovation period, or the clash between dreams and realities, between motions invisible and apparent. The overlappings of real and false details are symptoms of the immune system whose conscience has been pre-programmed. The film might be a lie told by a child refusing to come to terms with reality, a sigh of a person failing to comprehend cultural incompatibility and social’s inequity, a foolish drivel and soliloquy of an atheist or a cry of grief from a son, the black sheep in his own family.
