SYNOPSIS

Vera lives in the shadow of her famous father. Tired of her superficial life and relationships, she drifts through Roman high society. When Vera injures a child in a traffic accident in the suburbs, she forms an intense relationship with an eight-year-old boy and his father. But soon, she must realize that also, in this world, she is only an instrument for others. 

PROGRAM NOTE

It is not easy to live as a child of a prestigious artist. Because a name tag always follows them, whether you want it or not. The protagonist Vera has lived under her father’s shadow, a well-known actor, and even though she is middle-aged, her life cannot separate from his influence. Meanwhile, Vera starts to live a different life due to an unexpected accident. She gets deeply entangled with a family with different interests, social statuses, and life trajectories. Vera takes care of this family and feels like she is discovering a true life outside the film world where she belonged. However, the life that she thought was true life is something Vera couldn’t easily guess. The film takes the audience in an unpredictable plot and tightly weaves the movie with reality. Outside of the screen, there are lives of others that unravel differently from the movie. However, the process of looking into their lives and understanding them might not be that different from the reason we want to watch a film. Then how can life get entangled with movies again once we feel that they are disconnected? In this process, the movie walks forward by questioning if what Vera feels is true and false. It is up to the audiences who need to accept the life they cannot understand.  [CHOI Yiwon]
