Kim Sang-hyun, NAM Hyo-ju
Although the anti-smoking campaign has grown in strength, the number of female smokers has been increasing. But why is it still so rare to see women smoking on the street? Beginning with this simple question, this documentary investigates the social violence directed against female smokers. Dedicated to women who never stopped smoking, despite all the public abuse heaped upon them. (Kim Hea-seung)
