Synopsis
Down an alley where one wouldn’t expect to find such a place, there is a coffeehouse where people sit here and there talking amongst themselves. Opposite the coffeehouse, the owner of a small grocery has planted various kinds of vegetables that sprout up inside large rubber basins. As time passes, the people sitting at different tables grow familiar with each other and start to mix. One woman observes the others and writes down her thoughts. Even as the night grows late, they all remain in the coffeehouse.

Hong Sangsoo
Hong Sangsoo made the astounding debut with his first feature film The day a pig fell into the well in 1996. Since then, through the 21 films that he wrote and directed, Hong has consistently enjoyed using a complex and highly ordered architecture under a seemingly random surface created by spontaneous circumstances in depicting the characters in his films. Renowned for his unique cinematographic language and unprecedented esthetics in filmmaking, Hong Sangsoo is considered as one of the most established auteurs in contemporary Korean cinema.
