Life’s crises always come unexpectedly. While it would be nice if we could avoid it, the reality is,unfortunately, not always so. We may try our best to put our tangled lives back in place, but sometimes we can't seem to get out of the crisis and then we fall into an abyss. Can we not get through it wisely? In this film, I wanted to talk about gaining one’s courage again—to dream, to hope, and to move forward.
