A boatwoman who makes a living with carrying passengers encounters a prostitute who travels sometimes with her. She asks the boatwoman to take her somewhere around the marsh. The prostitute asks her to have an eye on her in case she gets delayed. After a few minutes, she hears the sound of something breaking and enters the conflict between the prostitute and her customer to support her. This happening leads to closeness between these two women. When the boatwoman comes back home and sees her husband carousing with his friend, she decides to abandon the home forever.

This work shows the photos of four generations of women: The director herself, and her grandmother, mother, and daughter. Contained in one household's album were the memories of women from many generations - women who have passed, women who were newly born, women who became adults, and women who grew to become old. The times they lived were different, yet they were all someone's daughter and someone's mother. When we take and connect these moments that they share, the concept of time unravels, and takes on a new shape. These stories do not belong to anyone, yet they were all mine at the same time.
