I made this film by combining 10 years worth of my memories and voices from interviews of my friends that trace my maternal awakening. I wanted to make this film enjoyable and extemporaneous, giving a different impression to each scene. I was worried about the last scene of the film. I am unfamiliar with true maternal feelings because I have no children. My opinion about it has changed a lot in the making of my film, mirroring the 10 years of trial and error in the process of making my films. That is why I made the ending so that each viewer can find their answers about motherhood and children.
