The film follows blind-deaf Young-Chan and his wife in their every day life, where they rely only on their tactile senses and communicate by touch – a reason for why Young-Chan is said to come from the Planet of Snail. He provides the film with a poetic voice-over in which he reflects on his astronaut-like existence without sight and hearing.
This film is a rare chance to see creative documentary talent from Korea reaching a wide international audience, as well as a unique portrayal of an unseen minority by director Seung-Jun Yi, which Sight and Sound called “a beautiful evocation of love; more precisely though, it’s also a fastidious account of the labour of togetherness.”
