Growing up is just like an irreversible and eternal nightmare journey. I try to transform the abstract thoughts collected for years into the cinematic expression. The story begins with a young boy named “A”, who lost his name. He started a road trip to search for the inner landscape of himself. At the end, this is also a journey to explore the lifelong puzzle of where I came from, where I’m going to, and who I am.
