16-year-old girl Jung Ae is living with her father in a redevelopment area of Seoul. Her father was diagnosed with an end-stage cancer and is waiting for his death without further treatment. He tells Jeong-ae that it is easier to give up life than try to survive. However, Jung Ae refuses to accept his idea and tries to overcome the hardships of their life. One day, she receives a letter from her mother who left her long ago. Eventually, she’s on her way to find her long-lost mother, believing that this is the only hope left to her.
There will be a Post-screen Q&A Session with dir. Jeong Hee-jae
“The Contemporary Asian Cinema Series” (CAC) is a new cinematic initiative by Singapore Film Society and Filmgarde Cineplexes to celebrate Asian films in all its diversity and to present critically acclaimed works from emerging and established film directors from the region.
Starting from July 2019, CAC is a fixed monthly programme that bridges the professional film industry with filmgoers and aficionados through thoughtfully curated film screenings paired with educational and audience engagement elements, such as talks by film critics and programmers, as well as post-screening discussions with the filmmakers and cast, with the aim of building film interest and literacy.
