His expression momentarily betrays a recollection of something before he offers a faint smile and tells her, “There’s nothing in this world that will not turn pure white.” When he wonders why she is in a hurry, Hana slowly begins to disclose her circumstances with her boyfriend. She had received a letter from her boyfriend who lives in Prague.
