Synopsis: Most of the time, what you have been looking for all this time has always been right in front of you.  A short branded film for Jinro Soju.

“Tapatan Na” has 2 meanings.  The most common one is literally to be true to one’s self.  The other meaning is being across from each other.  This is the idea behind this short film between 2 people whose paths seemed destined to always run parallel to each other.
