SYNOPSIS
In a darkened auditorium, a black grand piano stands in the middle of the stage. We see a man sitting in front of the piano. His name is Sun-wook. He closes his eyes as if deep in thought. Seven people sit in the auditorium, their faces obscured in darkness. Suddenly, the pianist opens his eyes, puts his hands to the piano and begins to play the first movement of Beethoven’s Concerto Emperor. The music gradually touches the people in the audience, and they slowly fall under the spell of the miraculous sounds. After seven minutes of playing, the pianist suddenly smashes his hands down upon the piano keyboard. The music stops abruptly. The room is filled with a great emptiness and silence. The people are speechless, and soon filled with unknown sorrow and pain. We see the pianist playing the piano, transcending time and space, beyond city and nature. Soon the film guides us to a space where we can look deeply within ourselves and seek out who we really are. The journey of our characters and of their fantasies leads us to a spiritual healing and salvation. Throughout the battle within us and the miracle of our nature, we encounter moments when our souls are laid bare. These people desire to throw away their lives, and nature hopes to give them back...
