Although it’s not always the case, a trip can become a life-altering event. This film tells the story of a spontaneous trip that ends up changing not just one person’s life, but a group of people’s lives. The protagonist, who works as a gardener, is in dire straits with family relationships already a mess and facing bankruptcy when he’s not paid the money he’s expecting. As if running away from his dismal situation, he sets out on a trip, driving the light plane, which was his sole source of happiness. However, the conclusion to his journey is far from predictable. This film offers a chance for healing in the true sense alongside the breathtaking aerial shot landscapes by urging us to rethink the meaning of life. (KIM Se-jin)
