Program Abstract: When her brother Hyung-chul walks out of her life, Mi-ra was left trying to figure out whether the family she knew ever really existed. Five years later when he shows up on her doorstep with a bouquet, a grin, and a new wife who is 20 years older than he, Mi-ra is forced to come to grips with a new family in this affectionate domestic farce. Kim Tae-Yong presents a delicately constructed, cross-generational look at the emotional consequences of broken families, its careful observations captured in a beautifully written script and universally strong performances through a truly artful lens.
