The story of this film is inspired by a very famous classic story “slow and steady wins the race“, but in this film the hare is replaced by a man. This story holds a message for the reader. So the story is ‘pasteurized’ in the way it applies the message literally but also could also be about the two different stories meeting on just one point. Viewers will have preconceived ideas of the classic story which will support the narration of the story in this film.
