HOW I GREW UP
We have many emotions that have not been observed. In this film, “I” has a feeling of fear of being doubted by others because of a cup of coffee that has not been thrown away. The whole film revolves around the observation of this emotion. By depicting four trivial things that are growing up, and tracing the reasons for its formation, “I” finally sees the appearance of this emotion.
