Winner of the International Critics Award at Cannes Film Festival 2018.
While working as a courier in Seoul, aspiring young writer Jong-su encounters the lively Hae-mi, a childhood friend from his hometown. The two spend the day together, and when Hae-mi asks him to feed her cat while she’s away on a trip to Africa, Jong-su is convinced of a burgeoning romantic relationship. But on her return, when he arrives at the airport to collect her in his run-down truck, Jong-su is surprised and confused to find Hae-mi accompanied by the handsome, Gatsby-esque Ben. The three begin an awkward friendship, with Jong-su’s feelings for Haemi growing ever stronger, even if it’s apparent she has fallen under the spell of his rich and mysterious rival’s charms.
