LOGLINE

Hye-won tries to escape from the politically progressive DNA inherited from Hyang-nip.

SYNOPSIS

Hyang-nip has lots of job titles but she listens to podcasts all day, saying, “I should have been a politician.” She fights a lot with her daughter Hye-won because of her temper. Hyang-nip’s religious beliefs reject feminism. Hye-won vows to break free from Hyang-nip and her DNA. However, it is difficult to question the political inclinations Hye-won acquired. The mother and daughter have participated together in campaigns against the naval base in Gangjeong, the anti-nuclear movement, and the candlelight protests. Hye-won is even more troubled by the fact that her own contradictions are almost the same as those of Hyang-nip. How long can Hye-won, full of intellectual vanity and arrogance, hide her own contradictions? Will she be able to escape from the DNA from Hyang-nip and find her own DNA? And, in the process of finding DNA, will Hye-won find her own “progress”?

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

"I don't know. I have a DNA.” She believes that she has progressive DNA. That DNA was carried over to me as well. Is the political correctness of mine unconditionally correct? I wanted to ask a question about my political orientation that I believed was too "right." This documentary is the story of a ‘me, born in the 1990’s,’ who believes that I inherited the progressive DNA of ‘Hyang-nip born in the 1970s,’ within the political correctness that I’ve followed like religion. This documentary tries to capture a situation in which I can't easily break my umbilical cord from my mother, but still, I wish to find my true political DNA.
