Film Description:

Sang Eun, who’s been fighting cancer secretly behind his family’s back, goes to his grandmother’s funeral. There he sees his family members focusing more on how much money they’ll be inherited instead of remembering his grandmother. That makes him imagine what his funeral would be like. He meets his old friend Eunkyu’s uncle at the funeral and hears that Eunkyu is also getting treated for his pancreatic cancer at the same hospital and that he’s in stage 4. Sang Eun pays a visit to Eunkyu after the funeral and he immediately gets the feeling that his friend doesn’t have much time left. As he walks out of the room, he’s met with Eunkyu’s mother who’s in total despair and he sees that death could mean desperation beyond sadness to someone.
