Pun is at first cold towards his nurse Ake, but as Ake continues to earnestly take care of him he starts to open up his heart through candid conversations. The physical contact with Ake makes him rethink physical desires that he wants to forget. The grudge he held against his father slowly abates. All of this slowly becomes the motivating factor to confirm that he is alive, albeit with physical problems. —IMDb
