A film about coincidental meeting of people who, for reasons of their own, dislike following trails set by others. They want to seek hapiness on their own terms, not those dictated by anyone. This is also a film about love, or rather about what to do to protect ourselves from love, because love can be greedy, selfish, and no good can come of it. Love contradicts independence, therefore it couldn’t possibly be an ingredient in the recipe for hapiness planned by our proganists. A film about whether it’s possible to steer clear of love with just little crushes, or does it always have to end in an avalanche when real emotions are involved.
