Thirty-something Mihee (Lee Sanghee) repeatedly fails the bar exam, gets dumped by her long-term boyfriend, and moves into a tiny, rundown flat, feeling completely lonely and failed. One day she arrives at the house of forty-something Sungsook (Hong Seungyi) and claims that the two were once best friends in high school in spite of the obvious ten-year age gap between them. Having never set eyes on Mihee before, Sungsook invites her into the home she shares with live-in boyfriend and teenage sweetheart Ikju (Im Hyeong-gook) and behaves as if she and Mihee really were long lost friends.


Lee Wanmin’s debut is a dreamlike tribute to the depth and immediacy of female friendship both past and present.


Followed by a Q&A with the Director Lee Wanmin and Actress Kim Saebyuk
