Synopsis
A woman walks up to a road, who has puffed rice in her hands and leaves her baby in a carriage on the side of the road. While this woman sells the puff the rice, walking dangerously through the cars, walnut cookie sellers appear and their cold war begin. Meanwhile the carriage starts to roll down the road accidentally.
Director's Note
I'd like to bring up the issue of indifference to poor women by telling a story of a woman who sells puffed rice on the street for a living.
