On the site of a derelict building, location scout Sai meets art director Oom, and they begin working together. Sai records everything on her digital camera, from images of locations to the people in her life.
Two years later, Sai is still in the same job, while Oom has moved on. One day her computer crashes, wiping her hard drive, along with the images that capture an entire year of her life. Among them are those she’d taken of Oom, and a an intense period of reflection and memory begins. Consisting of 36 shots, 36 won the main prize at the Busan International Film Festival in 2012, and is a delicate contemplation on the nature of memories in the digital age.
