The film is a slice of life from the love story of two people who fall in love quickly and wholeheartedly. The narrative spends time and effort in constructing its world for the viewer, complete with the visual grammar and the overall ambiance of the realm the characters inhabit. From quiet moments of companionship to playful exchanges of affection and intimacy, the narrative invokes them all.

The film endeavors a deliberate sense of otherworldliness, a space that is conjured around the metaphysical aspects of a bond, more than the corporeal. The most notable pronunciation of the same is in the visuals, color palette, and background score.

Additionally, there is a marked ease between the two actors, along with a sincerity of performance. The moment the story explores is not only of union, but also of parting, and goodbyes. The message that the conclusion eventually echoes is that it is the depth of a meeting and shared love, and not its duration, that truly defines it.
