Jung-hwa is asked to go on a trip with Yu-mi, an old friend of her since high school. However, Jung-hwa finds out that Yu-mi tricked Jung-hwa into going on a road trip to get her involved in a pyramid scheme. Jung-hwa feels hurt, and she is willing to show how she feels.


 

 

College student Jung-hwa is happy to go on the first trip with her high school friend Yu-mi from long ago. But she soon realizes that Yu-mi is lying to her in order to drag her into a pyramid scheme. Jung-hwa says that she was hurt and blames Yu-mi for manipulating their friendship, but while doing so she comes to confront her own hypocrisy as well. In a society with fierce competition, self-protection is justified as a means to survive stopping us from seeing that we are actually stepping on others. By revealing a hypocritical situation of the young generation, this film gives the audience a chilling moment to introspect ourselves. (CHO Hye-young)
