Amina, a 17-year-old woman, gets pregnant and feels terrified. For consolation and advice, she goes to her mother and aunt, but their stories scares her even more. Her mother, treating Amina like a child, says that babies come out of cabbage and her aunt frightens her, exaggerating the pains of labor and hatred against men. Neither of them is helpful in preparing her to give birth. This is a new film by director Signe BAUMAN who has portrayed women’s sexuality and psychological dramas about their body through exaggeration and satire. (CHO Hye-young)
