A girl working at a small restaurant. A boy running away from home. An unpaid woman from Yenbian and a restaurant owner. These are just ordinary people we see in Korea today, but their situation is worse than it seems. It may be a coincidence, but they somehow get together and live in a small rented room. On the outside, the sight of these four lying down in a crowded room is ridiculous, but it is the sad reality. The director tries to get over the harsh truth lurking trough his friendship of these strange four people in society. “No disposable allowed” and the compensation policy for reporting are two clues to the core nature of the film and they somehow resemble reckless government policies that ignore the reality. People have to live with these useless policies, but they get over them in the end. However, real problems occur elsewhere. Homeless people are everywhere; teenage girls get pregnant irresponsibly; and ethnic Koreans from Yenbian cannot go back home to China. However, the film has a happy ending, as if to tell us there is hope. Behind the friendship of the characters lie paradox, optimism, and pathos.
