A strikingly well-dressed woman is sitting in a restaurant. She seems to be desperately waiting for someone. She stares at the people in the restaurant. Some of them are lovers, some with children, some fighting, and some breaking up. Maybe one of them shares her same story. Only those who have had the experience of waiting for someone who never showed up would know how she feels. Her waiting seems endless. A thought-provoking film that will turn your common-sense expectations upside down in the end. (Jenna Ku)
