    Mo Geumsan, a small town barber, doesn’t have much longer to live. Deciding that he wants to shoot a film before he passes, he enlists the help of his son who dreams of becoming a film director, and his son's girlfriend. Their short film is positively Chaplin-esque!

    Lim Dae-hyung hits all the right notes with a delightfully offbeat dramedy.

    Richard Kuipers, Variety

    A mix of delicate melodrama and Chaplinesque slapstick humour.
