导演阐述 Director Statement
When someone asks you about your lover, you get hurt a little by telling lies that make your lover disappear. Eventually, when the ‘secret’ becomes the norm, the wound will harden and you won’t feel any pain. Maybe that’s what it means to be an adult. However, if you try to resist giving up even modestly, even if you can’t change the world, you will be able to create a bright seed within yourself and discover a new you that you didn’t know. It can be a new turning point in your life.
