It focuses on leaving the past behind and moving forward, instead of becoming trapped by previous experiences. Matano uses horror to explore frustration, fear and desperation. The film stems from Matano’s personal fear of growing up, leaving university and moving on into the unknown. It expresses the illustrator’s struggle with and acceptance of this fear, as well as their hopes of starting a new chapter.
