Fourteen-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.

“This is a beautifully raw, queer, and partially autobiographical coming-of-age story.” (The Mary Sue)

“The autobiographical script amplifies the travails and hopes of female adolescence through startlingly specific observations without the tinge of false nostalgia.” (Abby Sun, Film Comment)
