""Everyone realizes that one day we are the moon. The moon can shine because the sun is shining from a distance that is no longer reachable. And it shines. The moonlight will fall on someone's heart over a long period of time. The reincarnation of light. "




Multiple stories, such as "The Incident at Diner," "The Story at an Illegal Casino," and "The Story of a Runaway Girl and a Detective," proceed in an omnibus style, eventually becoming one story. When the truth is revealed, the audience is amazed by the 
magic of the time series and realizes that the theme is "family love." Heart-warming hard-boiled that ends with a warm feeling.

"Moonlight Dinner" is a feature film following a series of bizarre events (a couple trying to burn a young woman, a strange story shared in an illegal casino, marriage and insurance fraud) that clash and bring all characters together at a diner. As the separate stories become more connected, the films explores themes such as love, greed, hope and the universal human need of belonging.
