A father is intent on painting the house, but his four years old son keeps distracting him. After scolding his son, the son runs off and the father must find him.
My dad once told me that he felt he was a bit too strict on me because my grandfather spoiled me. Looking back on my life, there were times when he was hard on me, but there were moments of warmth too. My dad just overcame a severe sickness, so this film was important for me to make. I wanted to create a short film that expressed the bond my father and I share. Even if we don’t say “I love you”, it’s understood.
