Mina is a writer for a magazine and, despite being seven-months pregnant, she is stomping the streets of Busan for an article. Her assignment is collecting people’s first memories through a series of interviews. Behind her smiles, she is anxious about what giving birth feels like. Through her work meeting the people of Busan, maybe her fears will be settled.
As we follow Mina around, director JIMBO Yoshimasa allows us to experience the daily beats of the city, riding subways to cinemas and from downtown markets to the suburbs with their temples. Our focus is one woman but the life around her fills the frame as well and we see a celebration of Busan.
