Young-hee, Young-ran, and Soon-cheon call themselves ‘the turtle sisters.’ All of them are first-degree handicapped women, yet they have devoted their lives to improve the rights of handicapped women challenging the discrimination they receive from society. Furthermore, they agreed to expose their private lives to change the misleading conceptions towards handicapped women. The film deals with the everyday lives of the three women who have been living together for five years. Their lives are not so different from other people. The film carefully attempts to challenge the prejudice against impediments and handicapped people and shows how handicapped women strive to lead independent lives. (Lim Sung-min)
