SYNOPSIS

The sudden death of the aunt leads Woori to her funeral, where she finds out that her aunt was in fact a legend in track. She was so talented that she ranked second in the national competition, but she gave track up to support her brother. Somehow, Woori ends up in her aunt's childhood and she tries to change her aunt's past to make her dream come true.

PROGRAM NOTE

At the funeral of her youngest aunt, Woori learns that her youngest aunt was a legend of track and field in her school days for the first time. Woori begins to remove the obstacles that blocked her aunt’s way with all her strength.

 

The film shows how overlapping the hurdles surrounding a woman’s life are. It is a film that makes us think about what blocks women while watching the narrative of misfortune that has been transformed into humor and a revenge drama. [LEE Sukgyung]
