Dir. by Arthur Nauzyciel, Pierre-Alain Giraud - Feature film, IN DEVELOPMENT

 

For generations, in a Catholic family in South Korea, women abort if they carry a baby boy, because of a rare genetic disease affecting only men. Sun-Hi, the youngest of the family, refuses to keep her baby when she becomes pregnant, whatever the sex. That infuriates her mother and sisters, who believe she should keep it if it’s a girl. Sun-Hi frees herself from the family’s traditions, and searches for the origin of the disease. She will discover her grandmother true story: since she wasn’t married, she invented the disease to terminate an unwelcome pregnancy.
