 Overcast 浮沈

2021, 3min 37Sec.

OVERCAST is about the emotional relationship between parents and children, presented from the boy's point of view. The story begins with a free bird flying towards the sun. The boy takes a look at it, but turns his head to face the street, a metaphor for the contrast between the boy's curious mind and reality. The mother, who has a strong desire to control, causes a lot of pressure on the boy's mind and creates various delusions of his own. When he wants to enjoy happiness or want to have fun, he will suddenly see the face of his mother's rebuke, then the happiness will turn into sin. Back home is also full of pressure. When the boy sees a goldfish jumping out of the fish tank, he feels that it is like him suffocating. The plot makes the audience think whether it is the mother's Emotional intimidation or the boy's excessive self-delusion.
