Despite her love for her new baby, Ji-yeon struggles with the halt of her acting career, a negligent and insensitive husband, and interfering neighbours. A visit from a now-successful actress friend only increases Ji-yeon’s sense of isolation; so when she gets an offer for an audition, she’ll do anything to make it happen. This award-winning short is a poignant and intimate portrait of a woman’s struggle to maintain her identity in the face of parental responsibility.
