“There is nothing harder in life than seeing someone you love decide to be alone. You enjoy seeing her and hearing her voice, but she closes the doors and chooses loneliness ... There is nothing harder in life than being left alone. You see your loved ones and you love them, but they all deny you. They close the doors on you and you are alone. Loneliness is a swamp,” a synopsis for the film read.
