Junha is one of the most difficult children at the school. His autism causes him to attack his classmates and even teachers without warning. Each outburst further isolates Junha from his community as his teachers and peers struggle to find a way to live "with" Junha. The camera provides an intimate look into this society, leaving the question; what is human entity and how is it connected?
Everyone tries to help with autistic Junha but it is not easy. Hong focuses the camera on Junha, the protagonist. She tries to capture the planet inside Junha’s head not as a child with certain symptoms but who has his own world. The ones surrounding Junha’s planet includes his parents and many others. Are they his satellite or from another galaxy? The microcosm is a place where various debates, concerns and opinions are repeatedly discussed, practiced and corrected. Humans carry their own pain and wounds but then eventually form balance when concerns and practice are repeated together. It looks risky but the revolution and rotation do not stop. The film captures the depths of the very universe in which we live. [LEE Sang-yong]
