    • Synopsis
    • Daniel, a young music enthusiast who has never been anything more than an amateur guitarist, has merely ended up as a cleaner in a concert hall where he still tries to follow his dream of playing on the stage with the help of the reminders of his younger self, Danny. Getting evacuated by his landlord due to his late rent payment, Daniel comes to face the total failure that he has ended up in, instead of the fancy future that he has always been dreaming of. The penniless Daniel makes a mysterious phone call making an appointment, leaves his evacuated house for good, and tries in vain to get rid of Danny who follows him everywhere. Danny, who is persistent that Daniel should follow his dreams, makes Daniel play the guitar on the street. Daniel feels wonderful playing the guitar with all his heart and soul, but feels disappointed afterward when he sees he is being treated like a street musician with people tossing coins for him. He becomes frustrated and hopeless once more, leaving Danny behind against his will and heading off for his appointment with the unknown man who turns out to be Daniel’s older self. Daniel’s older self has ended up as a vagabond and considers Daniel’s endeavors as useless attempts that would eventually lead to nothing. Thus, the two Daniels decides to put an end to everything in order to prevent the even worse future that awaits them all.
