Synopsis

Unemployed and facing a dire financial situation, the couple Young-Tae and Jeong-hee are forced to pursue odd jobs and occupations around the city, but with an agreement: they won’t take out private loans. One day, however, Jeong-hee breaks the promise even though she knows she won’t be able to pay. With a keen sense of humor, director and screenwriter Park Songyeol stars alongside fellow screenwriter Won Hyangra in a quirky comedy about the precariousness of life and work in the ultra-capitalist society of our times.
