One day, Jinhee’s father takes her to the outskirts of Seoul. He leaves her in an orphanage. At first Jinhee has difficulty adjusting. She eventually makes friends and the pattern of life asserts itself. New orphans come and go. Throughout, Jinhee is certain her father is coming back to her. French-Korean director Ounie Lecomte drew on her experiences in an orphanage for her dramatic feature debut. The performance by Sae Ron Kim looks like a heartbreaker.
