The film, completely hand-painted, follows the journey of a man from his beginning to his end. As a young man, he falls in love with painting and as an adult, he falls in love with another person. Nothing lasts forever, and he eventually finds himself a broken man who puts a bandage - literally - on his past and his mind on the future in order to move on. As he faces his own mortality, will he learn to accept the life he’s led?

Namoo is a narrative poem come to life as an animated short film directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Erick Oh (Opera). Inspired by the passing of Erick’s grandfather, Namoo - which translates to “tree” in Korean - follows the meaningful moments of one man’s life from beginning to end and marks Oh’s most personal work to date.
