The play tells the story of how no one really knows what the value of life is. As the two protagonist lovers in Lungs discuss this topic, and try to reach a conclusion on how to raise a child, contemplating how to bring a positive impact to their surrounding society and environment, however they never reached a conclusion.

The stage is clean and bare allowing actors to tell the story through body language and dialogue. With just a single installation hung above them, allowing audiences to use their own imagination to interpret the stage. The plastic material of the installation echoes the environmental issues brought up in the play, yet at the same time symbolises life, which is the main discussion topic in the story. The cloud like installation hints that it is a fetus developing within the placenta, and through light reflecting and refracting on the white stage, it creates rhythms that emulate breathing.
