Director's Statement
Money inevitably puts people to the test in a capitalist society,
and the people today are obsessed with a fantasy that money can solve anything.
Money is the problem for most of the incidents that occur today.
In this film, two people who give and receive pain over money, unlikely to meet, come across each other and become family.
And through such family, we realize that we are accomplices to everything that occurs in our period.
Money will ask sad questions until the people of this era die.
Ultimately, we will end up becoming a money to each other and grind ourselves on an asphalt.
I again cry out towards heaven with a meager faith today.
God, have mercy on us.
