Hayat felsefesi ise;
How much does your life weigh? Imagine for a second that you're carrying a backpack. I want you to pack it with all the stuff that you have in your life... you start with the little things. The shelves, the drawers,, then you start adding larger stuff. Clothes, TV... The backpack should be getting pretty heavy now. You go bigger.I want you to stuff it all into that backpack. Now I want you to fill it with people. Start with casual acquaintances, friends of friends, and then you move into the people you trust with your most intimate secrets. Your brothers, your parents your boyfriend, your girlfriend. You get them into that backpack, feel the weight of that bag. Make no mistake your relationships are the heaviest components in your life. All those negotiations and arguments and secrets, the compromises. The slower we move the faster we die. Make no mistake, moving is living. Some animals were meant to carry each other to live symbiotically over a lifetime. Star crossed lovers, monogamous swans. We are not swans. We are sharks !!!
En büyük hedefi ise hayattan, 5 milyon uçuş mili !! toplamak… Ta ki hayatına bir kadın girer aile , yalnızlık , ve bir yere bağlılık gibi soruları kendisine sormak zorunda kalana kadar..
Özetle bir anda üzülüp kötü hissettirirken birden bire de umut ve mutluluk veren bir film.
