Project Synopsis
Character A meets his childhood sweetheart, Character B, who moved out at 18 by coincidence. Times have passed, and circumstances have changed, including Character A's Juvenile Open Angle Glaucoma. But any change cannot stop their feelings from rushing back like they were in childhood. It all happens perfectly and smoothly. The childhood friends Jane and Joel have been together since they were five. But when they turned 18, Joel was diagnosed with Juvenile Open Angle Glaucoma, which can cause drastic vision loss. Due to the inferiority and the possibility of total blindness, Joel and Jane paused their relationship after he moved out to find glaucoma specialists. But after five years, they meet again by coincidence. (Genre: Romance Mystery Drama; Duration: 12 min - 20 min)
