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.

In his follow-up to Diamond Island (Cannes Critics Week SACD Prize Winner) French-Cambodian director Davy Chou proves to be a new essential portrayer of today’s youth, demystifying the preconceived notions surrounding international adoption with this burning young woman’s quest to soothe her deep-rooted identity crisis.
