Shin is one of the best waackers – a form of voguing that’s heavy on pose. And the dance battle final is a high-stakes game. If she wins, the jackpot will cover her gender affirming surgery. But Shin also has other challenges to face. With her estranged father having recently died, it falls to her as the only child to perform the traditional dance ritual at his memorial. That means making an unwelcome journey back to her rural roots. However, Shin is accompanied by a spirit guide in the form of a peacock. Defiantly facing down all opposition with coolness and confidence, staying true to herself yet also shedding some of her sharper armour, Shin embarks on a winding path to enlightenment and soon finds the whole village going along for the ride. The brilliant first feature film by BYUN Sung-bin, director of God’s Daughter Dance, a short film programmed at Mostra FIRE!! in 2022 and which received awards around the world.
