After a long time of no contact, two middle-school friends meet again. One has become a secretary at a large enterprise and one has been fired after working as an irregular worker. They become reminiscent about their past and have fun. During their adolescence, they had the same dream which was to become an actress. Although they have fun when they recall their past, they become at odds with each other when they return to the present. A wall made by society stands between them. Where did their friendship go?
Director's Note
Although our living conditions and values differ greatly, we can become one if we go back to our childhood dreams.
