Storyline

Jean (Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying) wants to convert her house into a home office and she needs to majorly declutter and reorganize her entire house. Anything that has been lying around unused, she just simply throws all. However, Jean faces a great challenge when she comes across some items that belonged to Aim (Sunny Suwanmethanont), her ex-boyfriend. Although she has no use for the items, each one reminds her of a story that brings back memories, along with unresolved feelings that cannot be easily discarded by just dumping them into the garbage bag. Jean has to decide what to do with Aim's stuff. Should she just throw everything, keep everything, or return the items to their rightful owner to clear them completely from her house and her heart?

Summery no spoiler This movie is an attempt to explore human emotions without displaying meaning making it very pretentious.

Cinematography The cinematography is a little above average, I've seen film like Marriage Story that uses similar aesthetic to display nostalgia.

Story The story carry it self in a way that tries to make the audience think however it fail to do so by not giving things conclusion. It's like writing a sentence without putting a period. Sometime the film will create a meaningless silent that tries to give a message but it comes out very boring and pretentious, this can be said to the story and the script too. The ending did not had any conclusion or morale of the story.

Characters Actors were great you can really tell that they are good an showing emotions but even they could not save the film from it's bad screenplay and writing.

Before I saw the film I was really excited to see this movie after listening to the artist that collaborated with the movie "The Toys" however it turns out that the song that he made for the movie was not in the movie nor the credit meaning that it was just an advertisement to drag people to see this movie.
