Jungok is a housewife who has started her menopause. No need for sanitary pads then! That is the mindset her amiable (and somewhat thoughtless) husband adopts as he merrily tries to flog unopened packs on an internet auction site while Jungok downheartedly goes through her days. Understandably, she must feel like she is reaching the end of her journey but getting an order for the pads puts Jungok in contact with a teenage girl in a desperate situation because she has started moving forward into her journey into womanhood…

Periods and menstruation are still regarded by some to be a taboo subject but they are brought out naturally in a warmhearted and finely-shot short that reminds people that, despite pains and inconvenience, these natural bodily functions can also be considered a fresh start. [Jason MAHER]
