A violent scoundrel meets his unlikely match in a feisty schoolgirl.

Winner of over 13 much lauded awards at international film festivals. Sang-hoon (Yang Ik-june) is a lowlife gangster, a debt collector exercising thuggish ways to collect his money. The recipient of nothing but anger since his childhood, he expresses himself through violence. When he finally encounters someone who can stand up to him, feisty school-girl Yoon-hee (Kim Kkobbi, recipient of multiple Best Actress awards for this role) they become unlikely friends.
Together, they try to change their lives, to escape the confines of society’s periphery; change and escape never comes that easily though.
