14-year-old Eun-hee moves through life like a hummingbird searching for a taste of sweetness wherever she may find it. Ignored by her parents and abused by her brother, she finds her escape by roaming the neighborhood with her best friend, going on adventures, exploring young love and experiencing everything that comes with growing up in a country on the brink of enormous change.

“Deserves a place alongside the likes of The Virgin Suicides, The Ocean of Helena Lee and Eighth Grade as one of the most knowing cinematic takes from recent years on the pains and occasional pleasures of female adolescence.” – RogerEbert.com
