Director’s Statement

This film is based on my real life and working experiences. Sometimes, I feel like we are just a group of floating dandelions in the wind that longing for freedom, no choice but to be blowing by it, and let it bring me to all unexpected places.

Therefore, we had to lie to ourselves that everything is going to be fine, and tomorrow is a better day. This self-deception has been gradually lightening our sense of desire towards freedom.
