Painting in the midnight, our protagonist is pulling into the picture world by the lines when he drawn agitated; attacking by monsters formed of the lines, and finally managed to escape. Reality and the dream world are the most important opposing point of this film; the story works without detailed description of the protagonist's life, leaving an empty for the audience to experience their own imagination.

 

正在深夜里绘画的主角被自己烦躁时所画下的线条拉进画里的世界,被线条形成的怪物攻击,最后设法逃出。现实与梦境是本片最重的一组对立点,作品剧情中没有详细的描述主角的生活,留下一部分空白让观众自己去体会想象。

 大樓的修建晝夜不停,老婆婆的院落愈加危險,她卻固守于此,不願離開,無奈終有訣別的那一天……”
