On an impulse to reconnect with her origins, Freddie, 25, returns to South Korea for the first time, where she was born, before being adopted and raised in France.

The headstrong young woman starts looking for her biological parents in a country she knows so little about, taking her life in new and unexpected directions.

'Like its central character, this film is unconventional, and at times abrasive, but it has a seductive, searching quality and a swell of melancholy which makes for an engaging, if unpredictable journey' - Wendy Ide, Screen International
