    Chela and Chiquita have lived together for over 30 years. However, Chiquita who is involved in the fraud ends up in prison, Chela faces her reality. Chiquita was the one worked actively and Chela mostly has stayed in. But the reality Chiquita is confronted makes Chela come forward. She goes through the reality liquidating the properties and preparing the legal action. The film gazes at the reality Chela has experienced quietly like naturalism and shows the last phase of her life through her acting and character. Chela participates in the new social gathering. Through that, she ruminates on her past 30 years. This film was introduced in Berlinale this year. It is a very important film of this era that casts the subtle reality living in the South America as a female engraving the impression of late love and new relationship. [LEE Sang-yong]
