    Drama

    An eighteen-year-old delinquent was recently released from a juvenile detention center. He returns to his parent’s old home with a clean criminal record and a new identity. Local villagers sense an injustice in this lack of punishment ; they remember what happened there just a few years earlier. Also an ambitious filmmaker has decided to follow and document this delinquent’s return to a ‘normal’ life. With the backdrop of contemporary society, where “everything is meaningless and nothing is real”, this story of maturity and guilt unfolds.
