'The Bread Tree' tells a magic realistic story of love seeking through 2D illustrated animations and fantasy scene settings. Based on the singer's true life experience of her marriage proposal being rejected by her lover. The fantasy journey grows and blooms along with the seed of a Bread Tree, which the girl's lover gave when he left with a bird that happened to drop by.
While tracking down her runaway lover, she visits wondrous places that she has never dreamed of, such as gigantic poppy flower fields, huts made from stacks of books, mysteriously illuminated forests. At the journey's end, the Bread Tree is fully grown with ripen fruits, and the girl becomes a woman. The two lovers finally reunite, not knowing what will happen next, perhaps this is when the journey of 'two' begins.
translation of the opening storyline:
-It was year 2000,
-I said to him one day,
-"Why don't we get engaged first?
no need for big ceremonies,
just a simple but meaningful ring..
and a few close friends..."
-"What's the point of that?
Why not just get married?
But we don't have the money...so let's just drop it for now...
I never spoke of marriage to him again..
