Byung-woo and Hee-soo are brother and sister with hearing impairment who have been taught lipreading. While working part-time at a 24-hour convenient store after graduating from high school, Byung-woo gets falsely accused of a wrongdoing due to a new employee’s mistake. At the same time, Hee-soo meets up with Dong-jun, whom she’s got to know through an online game, for the first time, and follows him and his friends to their hideout.


 

Byeong-woo and Hee-soo are brother and sister who received deaf education. The older brother Byeong-woo works at a 24 hour fast food
 restaurant. He has been working there for 2 years, but is far from being promoted, and even the new employee pins his mistake on Byeong-woo.
 At the same time, Hee-soo goes off to a remote place to hang out with Dong-jun, whom she met online, together with his friends. Familiar scenes
 come up but the movie gives a slight twist by perceiving the disability more sensitively, as something socially constructed, not something given.
 Midnight Sun is a great human rights film. [Jay SOHN]
