In her impressive debut film, director Kim Mijo takes on a subject that in South Korea is a highly controversial taboo: #metoo in Seoul. Obok is a middle-aged woman who has worked for decades in a market in Seoul. She expects nothing more from life than a secure income and a few simple pleasures: a few glass of soju here, a foot massage there. One evening, Obok is raped by a colleague. When she goes to the police, she experiences what many women all over the world experience: they don’t believe her, she is avoided as an attention-seeking trouble-maker or stigmatised as the actually guilty party in the attack.
