Review

A civil complaint has been filed against Jisook who works at a local supermarket for offering soon-to-be-expired products to young siblings and her close coworker is danger of being fired. It is always the workers that are at the mercy of the supermarket’s regulations. No flexibility is allowed in the world of power and no power. In this bitter reality, Jisook asks the manager who already fired her coworker, “When is my turn?” Being unaware of her current situation, Jisook confesses the truth as she is standing on the edge of a precipice. That night, she visits the siblings and heads her home. Watching the film, one starts to wonder whether the expiration date refers to the product or the worker’s life and the title becomes very meaningful. The film skillfully arranges the individual’s inner conflict caused by labor issues. [KIM Sol]
