A warning sign flashes in her father’s life, that of a sailor who explored the expanse of the rough ocean. This film is a journey into the peripheral space created by a mental illness depicting the emotional weight experienced by the family caught up in it. Their history, dredged up by the parents, reflects and works like the very nature of memory. The film guides the audience to the place of intense reconciliation and deep thought through that very memory, which is the director’s current worry and position. [BAE Joo-Yeon]
