Family In The Bubble Web. A daughter's comeback

Having benefited from the real estate boom, Ma Min-ji's parents' fortune collapsed with the Asian financial crisis. Overwhelmed by their precarious financial and emotional situation, Ma Min-ji runs away from home in her teens.

After several years away from home, the daughter returns home to her parents, who are being forced to vacate their apartment. With a camera always in her hand, Ma Min-ji films this tense family reunion with the idea of reclaiming what was once a functional family.
