Sawol who sings arrives in an unfamiliar land at the invitation of someone. Sawol slowly builds a life for herself in this strange place. Sawol and the people living here speak in different tongues but they don’t have any difficulty communicating. Then one day, Sawol finds a poster for an auditon in a café and writes an email. She listens to music as she walks, organizes her thoughts and writes songs, and continues to repeat the mundane things that make her day worthy.
Time passes oddly while traveling. The landscape alternates between full color and black and white, and the familiar foreign language suddenly feels strange. Singer-songwriter Sawol takes her time resting in Los Angeles while observing everything alien to her. The film flows like a picture diary of Sawol and turns each chapter with her tracks as sub-titles. The ending credits subside after crying her heart out, making us pay attention to Sawol’s mind until the end. A precious gift for Kim Sawol’s fans. (Nam Sunwoo)
