Family Labor

SYNOPSIS

Hyun-Ji, a daughter in the family, tries to get away from her family which is like an old prison covered with thick mold. She struggles to attest that she’s different from those people who she belongs to. However she ends up defeated like them and it makes her to think that it’s all because of the way she grew up and the people she lives with. Hyun-Ji feels contempt and skepticism of her family which randomly assigned to her, and then suddenly a ‘game changer’ comes in but everything goes back to the zero point like merry-go-round horses.
 


 
 

PROGRAM NOTE


 


 Having been living away from home to study for the
 civil service exams, Hyun-ji temporarily returns to
 home where her family lives after taking the exam.
 Her mom sacrificed and gave up everything to solely
 live and take care of her family, while the two men
 in the family, Hyun-ji\'s dad and younger brother, are
 like parasitic plants. This film captures quite well the
 hidden side of the family – the fact that it is the family
 members who witness the greatest flaws of each other
 and are often the ones that make each other\'s lives
 harder more than anyone, precisely because they are
 family. [KANG Ba-da]
