After years living abroad, former actress Sangok (Lee Hyeyoung) is back in Seoul, staying with her sister Jeongok (Cho Yunhee) in her high-rise apartment. Sangok meets with a film director, secretly smokes cigarettes, and ruminates on the possibility of a comeback… Hong Sang-soo’s latest is a cinematic meditation on making amends and memory. “The film is an obsessive rumination on the little squabbles and inconveniences and pleasures that add up to the bulk of our lives.” –Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
