The second chapter of life: it’s easier said than done. People do not change easily, and society alienates individuals as they grow older and older. When one retires from the job he dedicated his life to, what would he do next in the second chapter of his life? In a cheerful documentary, the director portrays his father as he dreams and challenges a new dream after retiring from the 34 years of his career as an art teacher at a middle school. His mother, who complains a lot yet quietly supports her husband at the same time, is also a sheer delight to watch. When the weight of time carries wisdom to bring another life, it ain’t over till it’s over. (KIM Se-jin)
