A cleaner works alone in the underground garage everyday. The things that keep him company are the heavy rain and the leaking room. Being unable to establish human communication, he crawls into the trunk of a long-abandoned car.
The triviality and repetition of real life force every modern person to become an aphasic person living in a closed space. Indifference and alienation become more and more prominent in the anxiety of hopeless communication. Therefore, the work shows the inner cry of people suffering from spiritual crisis through the fiction of a world of underground garage — in the face of difficulties, eager to speak. The helpless evolution of “hello” has become a hopeless “hell” of communication.
