Bengaluru International Film Festival - BIFFES

Synopsis

It is winter. An aging poet is holed up for two weeks in a modest provincial hotel overlooking the Han River. His adult sons are summoned to visit after years of estrangement. Meanwhile, a young woman, after having just fled a destructive relationship, gets a room at the same hotel and calls for a friend. They nap, take walks, and talk about everything while drawing the attention of the poet, who finds in the pair a beauty and fascination sufficient to inspire new verse.Their lives intersect, connect and disconnect and potentially become a metaphor for modern life.
