Director's Note
There was a moment when I said nothing even though I knew it wasn’t true. As I watched how the misunderstandings were snowballing, I realized that I had to endure those misunderstandings to live on. Belief is free from doubt, so it is fatal. I wanted to talk about how people become sure about their beliefs through this movie, Maggie. What actions do I have to take after I face the truth?
