“Brilliantly muses on the impermanence of everything we know—about ourselves, about others and the world—and points to transformation as the only inevitable constant.” Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times.

On an impulse to reconnect with her origins, Freddie, 25, returns to South Korea for the first time, where she was born before being adopted and raised in France. The headstrong young woman starts looking for her biological parents in a country she knows so little about, taking her life in new and unexpected directions.
