SYNOPSIS

What are the limits of personal sacrifice? The film tells the story of a match factory worker who takes up a remarkable challenge. We observe several crucial months in her life, as she attempts to turn her dreams into reality. It’s the story of extraordinary transformation. About love that gives her life meaning.

NOTE

[Jinna Lee, Programmer​]

While Kitty Kitty captures companionship and sacrifice for stray cats, this film follows Werka, a factory worker caring for her disabled child. Through juxtaposing her life as a worker and a caregiver, we experience mixed emotions of love and sublimity.
