About the film

After years of living abroad, former actress Sangok is back in Seoul, staying with her sister Jeongok in her high-rise apartment. The siblings sleep late, have breakfast in a café and visit a restaurant owned by Jeongok's son. But as the details of Sangok's day accrue (a spill on her blouse, an encounter at her childhood home), it becomes clear that there is much she is not revealing. And these mysterious circumstances have something to do with her decision to meet with film director Jaewon to discuss her return to acting.
