On an impulse to reconnect with her origins, Freddie, 25, returns to South Korea, 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 little about, taking her life in new and unexpected directions.

This film is French-Cambodian director Davy Chou's follow up to DIAMOND ISLAND, the Cannes Critics Week SACD Prize Winner. Chou proves to be an 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.
