dir. Brian Oh, 2014
A pianist pays a lone visit to the empty house where he and his wife had planned to move in together. While playing a song on the piano that stirs up his haunting memories, he encounters a squatter, a teenage girl. Before he takes the girl back home, however, she asks him to teach her how to play the song.

Dropping out of college in South Korea, he moved to Chicago to pursue his film studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
