  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


Former actress Sangok (Lee Hyeyoung) is back in Seoul, after living abroad for many years. She stays with her sister Jeongok (Cho Yunhee) in her high-rise apartment and seem to share most of their lives. The siblings sleep late, have breakfast in a café and visit a restaurant owned by Jeongok's son. But through the details of the day (a spill on her blouse, an encounter at her childhood home), it becomes clear that there is much she is not revealing. These mysterious circumstances seem to have something to do with her decision to meet with film director Jaewon (Kwon Haehyo) to discuss her return to acting.
