    Rumanian single mom, Mara dreams an American dream marrying American. But she meets the immigration officer who asks her for having sex with him to get a green card and bring her son. He keeps calling Mara and asks for a sex, she gets advices from people coming from her hometown to get rid of him. She feels uncomfortable with sexual threat and recording the situation secretly for lawsuit. But she has to decide to live here with her son. She asks the man living together for help but the response is abuse and violence. He treats her like a whore and denounces her as a woman taking advantage of himself. As the reality gets worse, her load to handle as a female immigrant gets heavier. The truth she knows can´t do anything in real life. Following Mara´s ordeal story, Lemonade illuminates widely hypocritical faces of American society and men´s selfishness. [LEE Sang-yong]
