As time goes by, the family gets drunk, and their miserable family story is revealed one by one.
Lee Seungwon’s debut film is filled with unpredictable energy. While the ridiculousness of each character makes us laugh, it emits sad energy. With an original approach to trauma, the film makes us think about the reality of a family, the source of all evil. [KIM Youngjin]
