A Korean director, Bo-ra Kim, in her first feature-length film tells a story about growing up. The story is set in the ‘90s Seoul and its main character is 14-years-old Eunhee, whose world consists of self-absorbed parents, older siblings who live a nightmare of having to meet high expectations, and other spontaneously-built relationships in which Eunhnee looks for warmth and acceptation. It is a universal story about the time of growing up, when one has to rise up to a challenge of men’s domination, discover their sexual identity, experience first break ups. In a meantime, the director paints a very personal portrait of her teenage years in the capital of South Korea. This period is closed in a symbolical event – collapsing of a bridge in 1994.
The movie won Grand Prix Generation 14plus International Jury on the Berlin International Film Festival.
