Film description

This film could be set any place people are caught in the downward spiral of growing financial needs at a time of economic recession. The twentysomething Youn-ho, must deal with his mother’s debtors and his girlfriend’s growing material expectations while he faces tough moral quandaries in his construction job.

Debuting director Kim Joong–hyun deftly sketches a portrait of a society obsessed with material status. Using spare cinematic tools and a withdrawn lead confronted with shuddering female characters, he offers viewers opportunities to observe and interpret human behavior at a time of pervasive economic downturn.
