  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


Independent film-maker Kim, for her second feature, travels back from New York to her Korean birthplace. In casting amateurs and working with little script, she gives a new meaning to the notion of a 'child's-eye view': 'Kim essentially gave a few pivotal lines of dialogue the kids would have to say, and then let them improvise, their spontaneity taking over.' (Twitchfilm) The children are abandoned by their mother, treated carelessly by their alcoholic aunt, and have to look out for themselves.
