In our modern society, the dominant value has shifted towards money. It fuels an unrelenting battle between those with wealth and those without. Money is now seen as the key to survival, comfort, and freedom, imposing immense pressure on everyone. It infiltrates the lives of the needy, the greedy, the powerful, and the elite alike.
In this materialistic culture, our relationships are often defined by financial considerations. Love struggles to survive without money, and families are frequently torn apart by disputes over wealth. Yet, we were once taught that love conquers all, that gratitude is the highest virtue, and that battles waged for money lead to collective losses.
So, where do we find ourselves when our core values are shaken, our ideals questioned, and our morals tested? ‘Cello’ is a compelling social drama that dares to challenge these prevailing notions. It explores a love triangle, delves into deadly obsessions, and portrays passions marked by profound joy and the bitterness of defeat, as well as faded glories.
