This film is a portrait of a Korean family living at a time in which the traditional family system and the modern one coexist. The man who is called ‘father’ in Korea seems to take absolute control over the family, but at the same time, he has no place for himself in the family. The film explores the masculinity which distorts the relationships among the family members and which enforces the strict regulation of gender in Korea. This film leads us the place of insight into and deep sympathy with pity father’s sufferance from heavy burden of patriarchy, loss and anger derived from such family relationships. This film won the Grand Prize in the Asian Short Film and Video Competition section at the 4th IWFFIS.
