 Synopsis
 Jeong-yoon suffers from people\'s suspicious looks whenever she uses a public restroom: she does not look feminine enough in people\'s eyes. Why is it so difficult for a woman to live in peace unless she clearly displays her sex in a way that the society agrees? The film brilliantly reconstructs an incident that any woman who feels uncomfortable to \'disguise as a woman\' may have experienced.
 
 Program Note
 Jeong-yoon suffers from people’s suspicious looks whenever she uses a public restroom: she does not look feminine enough in people’s eyes. Why is it so difficult for a woman to live in peace unless she clearly displays her sex in a way that society wants her to? The film brilliantly reconstructs an incident that any woman who feels uncomfortable to ‘disguise herself as a woman’ may have experienced. Also, the film points us to the activities of local media communities for women such as ‘Find_A’ which is responsible for the film’s distribution in Korea. (Jay SOHN)
