Director’s Statement When I was in my third year of high school, my sister was born. I used to pick her up from after-school class, where I would hear the parents comparing their children’s grades to kill time. I remember a child wearing blue light glasses and carrying a schoolbag almost as tall as her, somehow racing against the clock. I thought that in only a few years, she will also become a parent, competing with the others while picking up her child. The strange cycle of human education never seems to end, and it’s all in the pursuit of something ambiguous and elusive: something we call talent.
