 Synopsis
 Akira enlists professional support to clear up the house that his deceased mother turned into a hoarder\'s castle, but finds himself in a situation that he wasn’t prepared for. The problem is his elder sister Moe, who has willingly moved back in the house to carry on the legacy of her mother’s hoarding. Will he be able to persuade his sister to put an end to their family saga?


 


 Program Note
 Mother died. What are left are two grown children and an old house filled with rubbish. The son, who loathed the rubbish heap as a child, sets out to clean the house with a professional cleaning team; but the daughter unexpectedly rushes out of the house and stops the son, saying that she will live with the memories etched in the house. It is a stand off between a determined son and a formidable daughter. What will be the fate of this house? The film brings up the familiar themes of loss and sorrow, and effectively visualizes them through a space called home. Also, it is impressive to see the methods of reminiscence, which are contrasted through the images from the son’s camcorder and the images from the daughter’s projector. (KIM Hyeyoung)
