Summary
Simon is dealing with the increased fragility of his loving yet preoccupied mother, Suzanne. When a Taiwanese film student, Song, is hired to help care for Simon, a unique extended family is formed. The two become completely dependent on each other, yet both are lost in separate dreams mirrored by a delicate, shiny red balloon
