Amy is the only Western alien who works among the Asian coworkwers. She has troubles to get along with her colleagues. One day, she finds a magical hose under her colleague’s desk and suddenly falls into broadcasting coming from the tip of the hose. From the moment on, Amy’s life completely changes.


 

 

Amy, a foreign Caucasian woman who was transferred to a new department, feels alienated among Asians coworkers whom she cannot even communicate with. One day, a broadcast called ‘Today’s News’ trickles out from a strange pipeline. The news mercilessly discloses the homosexual affair between the boss and a coworker and the love triangle created by a stalker. Amy, who feels pleasure from listening to the broadcast in her dull and alienated life, increasingly becomes obsessed with the scandals; and by spreading ‘Today’s News’ to her coworkers, she starts to feel a solidarity with her coworkers. Even though the ending is a bit contrived, the film finely expresses a working woman’s desire to deviate from everyday life with unique imagination and dazzling wit, using a form called ‘news’. (SHIN Suwon)
