While her husband is on a business trip, Gamhee meets three women on the outskirts of Seoul. She first visits two close friends at their homes; the third, an older acquaintance, she encounters by chance at an independent cinema. Their meeting is polite, but strained. Gamhee in particular leaves much unsaid in conversations with her friends, but this still resonates. Before long, their shared history bubbles to the surface.
Born in Seoul, South Korea in 1960, he studied at the Chung-Ang University in his native city as well as at the California College of Arts and Crafts and at the Art Institute of Chicago. Since 1996, he has written and directed 23 films, three of which have already featured in the Berlinale Competition, most recently On the Beach at Night Alone in 2017.
