About youth, decountrifying and attitude toward life. Julia and Patrick - living-together, careful to each other, they have to face the approaching change. Artur - self-confident, world curious egoist, works as a coach and barista at the same time. Vacillating between his choices he reaches the point when his world must be defined anew. Maria - professionally fulfilled actress, running away from any relations, rebuffs every act of closeness. In their world there is no place for great ideas. Nation, identity, politics or economy are meaningless terms regarding what matters for main characters - defining one's self through non-committal human tensions and intensities. Written by Korea International Film Festival

Young people today seem to be so confused about lifes values that have decided to takle a day at the time....on the most itense personal moments backfires occur making them so reclusive and unapproacheful that the only meaning for them lies in the bottom of a bottle or in the smokes of pot or in drug abuse....family for them means only ties to the past and not something to look forward to which explains the population aging in Europe at least...the most tragic figure is the anorexic star who wants to win the borderline people and not the mainstream and fails....she is utterly disapointed and almosr suicidal.....she even denies an easy way out offered by the exploitation japanese master.....this decadence comes full circle every 100 years or so ..hence the parallelism to France,s impressionism (Mane -Renoir) with the lace scene....all in all it,s not a bad film...it just cannot help you to predict a viable future for generations to come and may be that is the point it wants to show
