Director's Note
How much time do people spend for other people′s lives? Is it possible to have the courage to reach out for others, and if so, how does it happen? There is cost to all salvation and we fear that. The film revolves around a man′s journey to overcome his fear and create a miracle called salvation. The journey is painful, sad, and unsuccessful, but the effects will eventually change the world and convince the audience that it is a human certification.
