Ho-chan’s narrow shoulders carry the full burden of his family’s financial worries. His parents overextended themselves during the economic boom years, his father is now a pensioner and the bills have piled up into dramatic mountains of debt. Ho-chan supports the family with his part-time job in the PR department of a state concern. When he is offered a permanent position there, he finally gives up on his dream of becoming a TV producer once and for all. [Synopsis courtesy of Berlinale]
