An accomplished poet who can no longer hear or see so he communicates with his wife through finger Braille, a unique form of communication where words are tapped on each other's hands. They rely on one another completely; even simple domestic tasks require complex collaboration and everyday moments that most of us hardly notice become tender shared experiences. A transfixing portrait of life on what seems like another planet, where touch communicates everything and love conquers all.

Truly heartwarming story. Should be shown in school to teach 'regular' people that the disabled have worth & can overcome amything.
Lost half a star because it didn't explain some things well (the day he goes out on his own, what was the days objectives? Who was with him? Etc...)

Young Chan has two disabilities but he is able to function in life, strive for learning and success and care for and be cared for by others. The visuals in the film are beautiful and it is more what isn't said that is important. I especially like the scene where Young Chang is hugging a tree.
