... but I don't give away the ending ...


A woman (we never see her, just hear her voice on the telephone)
goes away on business.  She leaves her son Xiao Wu (about 13)
and "Korean Uncle" Jun (a tenant?) alone in the apartment.  But they
never exchange a word with each other.  They ignore each other.
We gradually find out they are both very sad.  Jun gets drunk
every night.  He makes a couple of half-hearted attempts at
suicide.  We see him crying over a photograph of a woman.
Xiao Wu we see acting out at school.  And harassing people in the
park.  He has some foul-tasting medicine he takes three times
a day.  He tends to fall asleep anywhere.  Except at night.
He gets up every morning at 4:30 and goes through Jun's things
while Jun sleeps.  For a school essay, he makes up a story where
Jun is his father and they have fun together.

After about an hour to set this up, there is some tentative
connection between them that begins. ...
