Korean-Australian filmmaker, Melissa Kyu-jung Lee embarks on a plan to make a documentary about Korean filmmakers living abroad after being invited to the San Francisco Asian American Film Festival. There she becomes romantically involved with Korean-American man, Richard. However, she never did she imagined to become involved with Japanese-American Mark in no less than a week.
Through this personal tale, the filmmaker poses questions of sexual and national identity, and without losing humor and wit. In addition, by being both before and behind the camera, the filmmaker explores the ethics and \'truths\' that surround documentary filmmaking. An entertaining piece which also calls upon contemplation. (Nam In-young)
