The essence of the film lies in its celebration of a life spent together, weaving a tapestry of intertwined recollections and the blurred boundaries between individual and shared experiences.
As the director, I sought to liberate myself from the constraints of rationality and traditional narrative logic, allowing the film to unfold in a manner reminiscent of a child’s game. In this realm, things have a tendency of subtly transform into something else, roles can change in an instant and different times coexist. The film is a journey through play – a fleeting glimpse into the world of childhood imagination and an encounter with the end of life.
