She Left Too

Sun-hee is a middle-aged woman who lives in a shack out in nowhere. The winter is here, and the bitter cold and poverty constantly torment her. Her well-to-do friends are planning a trip to a balmy beach in Southeast Asia, and Sun-hee wishes she could go. But she sees a small flicker of hope, that her accrued air miles might get her a free ticket. While she waits for the ticket that seems so distant and unlikely an idea, her life goes on, bringing humiliation here and there. When she has almost given up, she finally gets her free ticket. Sun-hee escapes the cold, if only temporarily. Upon her return, what awaits her is a colder reality.

Director Statement

While VR is used extensively in the game and other such industries, cinematic VR is still in its inception, open to diverse opportunities and challenges. This may explain why people tend to regard VR films more as visual experiment than as ordinary storytelling movies that they enjoy. The making of this film has opened my eyes; it has encouraged me to better embrace the experimental nature of VR film while I still take advantage of the element of storytelling from regular movies. In this film, a woman unravels the drama of her life, as done in the movie format that we are more familiar with. VR technology is used to help the story move along.
