A young girl living in that moment. Her life is being helped along. The sound of the wind, the light. All of that is a memory, or perhaps a chronicle. And the mother succumbing to her old age, is she nearing the end of her days... A child is born, the years accumulate, and time just marches on without remorse. An enduring space called "home" and people encountering "light." What bliss.

Director's statement:

That in everything that is alive and in all living things, "people" exist. That those "people" exist within links. And perhaps, it is a unit of a "family" that holds that connection amongst "people" closest to itself. And a "home" which those families live in. There, "time" exists, the kind that passes without any remorse. Over the years people age, babies are born, from past to present, from now to the future, life carries on. A film chronicles both the joy and the cruelty of it all. What bliss. A film takes events that have passed and brings them back to life in this space as moving pictures. It is exactly a sequence of "irreplaceable moments."
