The film’s SIWFF Audience Award rewarded its smart dramatic approach to hot topics in Korean media: the ‘pregnancy order system’ used in some female-dominated workplaces, and abortion access. When Hyun-jung gets pregnant out of turn, there are rows with her boss, her pregnant colleague, and the nurse who is next on the roster. Focusing on Hyun-jung’s difficult decision, director Kim Na-kyung shows neither heroes nor villains, but women working things out together.
