Korea 2013, 107 Min, English subtitles

An atypical road movie with a guerilla-film aesthetic: After the death of their parents, the half-sister of the 17-year-old Min-jae disappears with most of their inheritance and without a word. Min-jae isn’t angry because of the money alone – he doesn’t understand why she’s gone into hiding. When he drives off to search for her, he discovers that his little brother has hidden in the car. Though he repeatedly tries to get rid of him, the journey brings the brothers closer together and Min-jae drops his bad-boy pose.
