Synopsis:
SUK-HOON KIM(48) came to the US with his son and has been running WOORI FOODS, a Korean grocery store for 4 years. Since the death of his wife, Suk-Hoon has tried to take on the nurturing maternal role, but is not used to showing affection towards his son; the inexperience often translates into awkwardness. A strong patriot, Suk-Hoon has pride in his native country of Korea and wishes to pass that heritage on to his son, but at the same time wants Il-Oh to find his own way living in the US.

Category:
Student Film

Title:

 
Unsure of his role in life within the US, Korean immigrant teenager Il-Oh travels inward and outward to escape the grip of his father and find an answer to his identity.

Il-Oh(19), a Korean-American teenager back from his first year of college, is working part-time at his father's grocery store over the summer. Born and raised in Korea but having spent the last 7 years in the US, Il-Oh had realized that he canít exactly fit into either group; he is yet to feel entirely comfortable around Americans, and fails to keep up with the Koreans and their rapidly changing pop culture. His frustration, aimed mainly and misguidedly at his father, builds up and eventually leads to an enraged outburst. In the end, Il-Oh finally learns that his particular situation and surroundings are not barriers, but rather gifts of the present that propel him towards a brighter future.
