This short story is a personal essay film about Japan, Hong Kong, Germany and Switzerland. The main theme is about the Imperial Japan during World War II and how I was educated about this period in Japan. Throughout my daily life as an immigrant in Europe, I cannot trust my sense of self and the education I received in Japan. Therefore, I trust the artifacts that cannot lie more than my exsistance. They can teach us many things without using words. They are like mirror copies that reflect our instinctive invisibility. An essay is about such wounds.
