A relationship with nature that was originally taken for granted in a busy city life.
The “mountainous area” where even humans live as a part of nature has a lot of hardships, so it is a divine scene.
It is also a very attractive place, blessed with abundant fruits.
Wider appeal of “mountainous areas” that are in danger of survival, especially in rural areas
I want you to know! It is a movie made with such a feeling.
