SYNOPSIS
Ji-won and Im-eun who have been Christians for more than 20 years start to feel uncomfortable going to church as they identify themselves as feminists. They have even heard someone saying, “Can you be a Christian and a feminist? That is called self-deception.” Ji-won currently staying away from church and Im-eun reluctantly going to church begin to share their experiences and empathize with each other. Despite all the discrimination, violence, and misogyny they have witnessed or experienced, they still want to remain Christians. They decide to listen to the stories of others who have gone through similar things. So, here’s the question: Can a feminist go to church?

DIRECTOR

PARK Ji-won

Likes harmless and innocent jokes. Isn’t good, but works hard because she wants to be good. It’s all thanks to feminism. Wants to ponder more, think more, and study more, in order to make people laugh more.

SUNG Im-eun

A person who is out of work but pretends to be a college-student. Loves her puppies the most. Is talkative, but likes the comforts of her home. Lazy, but wants to be rich. Wants to date, but likes being alone. I’m a feminist so I’m always divided, and split into two. Wishes the happiness of everyone.
