Director’s notes

In times of change when rules no longer apply, the only thing that matters to an individual’s survival is the decision he makes.

Exiled follows a group of wanderers who’ve been on the road for years but never quite figured out where the end lies. At a midway town, they’re confronted with a critical dilemma and decision has to be made: do they do what they’re told or take a stand for what they believe in? Their decision will turn them against everything they know. But at the end, the only thing that matters is what their hearts say.

The state of exile does not have to be involuntary expulsion. It is an action of voluntary absence in search of a higher ideal. This is perhaps a romantic sentiment when set against today’s cynical world. Nevertheless, it is what makes us human.
