Synopsis

This is my family photo album that I didn’t keep, and my home video that I’ve never taken. All my family members have been scattered for 8 years now. ‘I’ miss them, but it seems years of estrangement was so deep that I wasn’t able to knock on their doors. So ‘I’ decided to find and see them under the cloak of making a documentary.
