Synopsis: A couple drives a car at a tremendous speed to take their son who suffers from coughing to the hospital. When their son’s cough becomes intense and his father who drives a car looks back to his son with anxiety, the car collides violently with a herd of dozens of livestock. The car was severely damaged, but what jumped into the couple’s eyes was a girl who collapsed with livestock. In this story, the path to saving the life of their child greatly upset their destiny, but it conveys the absurdity of fate that is being drawn by another mighty gravity.
