The director meets and has conversations with those, including the director herself, who resist the age of violence and hatred. The issues they stand against are various: from entering an arts university to run up against military culture, to the Sewol ferry disaster which destroyed what little faith there was in the country, to the misogynic murder case of a woman in Gangnam station. The film inquiries into your and my pain, into the struggles we face, and most importantly into the possibility of change. Will the world ever be able to change? A number of appropriate hints to find the answer are scattered throughout the film. [AHN Boyoung]
