Wings Of Light
Quietly turn on the power switch the monitor slowly become brighter. In a virtual city where you find a place to rest your mind. The machine's sound making the gentle summon. Abandoned the imperfect reality of body flesh, leap out the windows of reality. Open the transparent wings and fly towards the moon. Search the perfect of a worldly paradise. Across the world till its end by following my hunches. Rode on fantasy's wind and scattered countless of light.

Breath In,Breath Out (深呼吸的必要, mean the necessity to deep breath) (Shinkokyû no hitsuyô)

Why people are always unhappy? Why the more we get, the less happier we are? Everyone have their own problem, so who can help them?

This is what the movie "Breath In, Breath Out" trying to tell. Seven young people (4 girls and 3 guys) went to Japan's Okinawa Island to work as a part-time sugarcane harvester. They never met each other before, and they each have a story behind them that they want to run away from (except the main actress, she really just want a special part-time job).

They work together, eat together, and stay in a same house together for 35 days. It's embarrassing at the beginning to stay and work with strangers, soon later the story of each person slowly revealed, everyone is just equal, nobody is better than others, all of them can't even resolve their own problem. On this desolate island, what they can do is just support each other and facing themselves honestly.

The movie can be conclude with a little story:

Daugther: Tomorrow is the swimming competition, I am nervous here.
Father: Before you start, take a deep breath first.
Daugther: Does deep breath increase my speed, make me win?
Father: No, but you will be more relax and enjoy.

The next day, the daugther got the last place, but she indeed is more relax and enjoy.

Our life are nasty to us, it is full of darkness, pain, sorrow, bore, helpless ... these are the fact that we cannot change at all, but ... you must remember to relax and take a deep breath.

This, is how the movie theme come by. The necessity to take a deep breath, especially when you are down.
