Love Hurts

One day, he tells Sam that he cannot feel physical pain at all and asks the shy and introverted girl to hit him as if he is a punching bag. After multiple declines, she reluctantly agrees only to find it greatly satisfying as it helps her release suppressed emotions. Because she likes Troy, she is now afraid of herself. What is love? For this question which has no absolute answer, society still applies some moral standards and conventional ethics. Director Rysto puts this complicated relationship before the audience, directly asking the true meaning of love.
