“I haven’t been an honest girl since the day I was born” confesses So-hyun, before she tells: how her boyfriend dumped her, how, desperate and alone, she was found and taken in by trans woman Jane as one of her “children”. How this family then fell apart and So-hyun was alone again. And then she tells another story, about another family, this time without Jane. How much of what she says is true? The stories are connected, have common elements and contradictions. What is fantasy and what reality remains a matter for negotiation in this enigmatic family drama on the edge of Korean society.
CHO HYUN-HOON (*1953) studied film and theatre direction at the university of Hanyang. After a few shorts, he produced his debut feature Jane, which won three prizes at the Busan film festival.
