Director's statement and synopsis:
"My parents were real estate dealers in Seoul in the 1980's. Thanks to the property market boom, they were able to realize the 'middle class dream', But after the Asian financial crisis, everything vanished into thin air and my family lost everything.

"My parents were told by the landlord to move out because our apartment would soon soon be reconstructed. However, they were far from being worried about finding a new place to live: they were still waiting for a jackpot in real estate.

"As I started to look at my family history, I realized that the scars of my life and my family's own economic rise and decline are related to a huge bubble of speculation and urban development."
