Korean Premiere

Growth/Independence Labor

After being fired from her restaurant job, Qin-Qin, a
 30-year-old beer girl, feels lost and tries to get drunk.
 She wanders through the darkened lanes by a fishing
 harbor, searching for meaning in her life. When she
 walks into a late night seafood stand, Qin-Qin finds
 what she has long been missing.

 

Chin chin
 promotes beer drinkers at bars by wearing a miniskirt. Such easily replaceable
 and self-devouring work doesn’t make her feel any sense of dignity. She,
 treated distantly by her family, her lover, her work, and even herself, doesn’t
 seem to have many choices left between being discarded or hitting the rock
 bottom of society. She precariously wanders the streets at night but,
 fortunately, she comes across a good company, and the night becomes a stage for
 those outcasts. Chin chin isn
t the only one who is relieved to enter a new day with the willpower
 she gets overnight.
