[ Story ]

This story is about the various possibilities in life faced by a mother and her son. They arrive at a train station in a small rural town with some purpose in mind. On their way to their destination, the parent and child are faced with a variety of choices. While some of the choices are trivial, others are very important for the two.

However, the audience never learns what choice the parent and child have made. The story moves forward with expressions that could be interpreted as the mother and son having chosen either alternative. As a result, this film presents the audience with only choices, allowing the story to proceed with as many possibilities as there are choices.

In this way, "a clear yet uncertain understanding" creates a new type of suspense in the hearts of the audience that shakes them without relying on a story line to create unease or the power of music.

This form of expression, where the story progresses with many possibilities that are never resolved, proves to be both highly effective in the development of this film's theme and establishes a bold new way of filmmaking where the method of expression itself creates the film.
