Blind Love is a live action film about two strangers who, through unfortunate acts of circumstance, are torn apart before they ever meet. There is a cheap apartment offered for rent, however the circumstances

surrounding the rental of the apartment are unusual; the room is leased for only half the day. When not killing for money, one, a professional killer, lives in this rented apartment by night while the other, a young prostitute working nights, rents it during the day. Despite never meeting, the two develop affection for one another through the haptical traces (for instance, belongings or scents) they leave behind and find themselves longing for more than what life has given them. Although they are no better than strangers to

one another, they both want to see each other and ultimately decide to wait for one another in the apartment, hoping the other will come. However, their conflicting life schedules never allow them to get together.
