Once an aspiring writer, Soo-Yeon now sustains her livelihood as an assistant scriptwriter under the wings of Moh, a renowned filmmaker known for his commercial successes. Caught in a cycle of churning out formulaic films with predictable characters, Moh yearns to believe that each creation possesses a semblance of novelty, grounded in the realm of reality. However, this pursuit leaves both Moh and Soo-Yeon feeling drained and weary. Amidst this weariness, Soo-Yeon harbors a delicate aspiration to liberate the characters from their one-dimensional existence, yet she soon discovers that her dream is dismissed as a mere "feminine" vanity in the harsh realm of reality.


Clever and moving play with double mirrors. A melancholy female scriptwriter is working with a narcissistic director on a new script. A personal ode to ambition and perseverance in the creative process, but also an ironic deconstruction of the vain laziness with which scripts are often made. - IFFRotterdam
