Synopsis

A young woman seems to have everything going for her. She graduates from university, finds a job in publishing and marries her handsome boyfriend. Soon a baby enters the happy family. The husband is becoming a very successful salaryman, their house reflects increasing wealth and status. As he grows distant, however, she finds herself tied to a child and a routine which cannot fill the sense of emptiness.


Through this mundane-sounding, anti-melodramatic tale, Park Chul-soo constructs an image of a whole generation of young, middle-class Korean women who, by the decade of the 1980s, were facing challenges unknown to most of their mothers: how to succeed in higher education, enter the world of work and at the same time maintain roles as wife and mother. Choi Myung-kil gives an understated performance as a young woman who will finally make the most difficult decision of her life.


This screening will be shown in 35mm.

The film is subtitled.
