Synopsis

Seung-hyuk has been sacrificing a lot for his older brother Min-hyuk who is suffering from ADHD. He finds out that his mother, who is divorced from his father and about to leave home, is planning to take Min-hyuk with her. Seung-hyuk doesn’t want to concede this time, so he sends Min-hyuk to school all by himself.

 

Director's Note

I believe one’s environment is the most crucial factor in developing his or her personality. And at the center of such environment is family. Although going through disintegration of their own family alone won’t give this brothers full understanding of the rules of adults, I wish a day’s experience of strife and reconciliation would provide them with will to keep their warmth as they grow up.
