Synopsis:


The film takes on the experience from a car accident of the director’s parents 32 years ago. It’s a story of two men who each is running away from a suffering of their own, at different time and place. A young idealistic journalist who cannot stand injustice, and a middle-aged man who turns away from his past and goes on living a meaningless life of motel owner.
