Humble deliveryman A abandoned his career as an architect after a terrible personal loss, but one day, an old woman solicits his services. She wants him to build her last home, on the spot where she grew up, in his unique way. You see, A constructs houses out of objects linked to his clients’ most precious memories. He declines initially, wary of his own tragic recollections, but a gift with special properties from the kindly granny convinces him to help her. A resonant, magical, flawlessly crafted tale about confronting grief, finding peace, and the joy of giving, from the eminent South Korean studio VCRWORKS, creators of the memorable web series RHYTHMENS. – Rupert Bottenberg
