Cast & Crew
Chilsu is an optimistic teenager who loves a fast-food waitress and dreams of emigrating to Miami. When Chilsu's life goes sour, he takes up with Mansu, a disillusioned artist who sells him on a "get-rich-quick scheme," and the film turns darker as it contrasts two very different views of Korea, and considers the possibility of reconciliation.
