"Wide awake to the wonder, terror, and giddy confusion of being a 14-year-old adolescent in 1970s Australia-or anywhere at any time, for that matter-Rosemary Myers' Girl Asleep is a strange, savvy, big-hearted teen adventure that feels perfectly pitched to its target audience as well as those of all ages in search of something unquestionably unique." Eddie Cockrell, Variety. In this vibrant portrayal of Australian adolescence, Greta Driscoll's bubble of obscure loserdom is burst when her parents throw her a surprise 15th birthday party and invite the whole school! Perfectly content being a wallflower, suddenly Greta is flung far from her comfort zone.

Having transposed the story to 1930s-era colonial Korea and Japan, Park presents a gripping and sensual tale of a young Japanese lady living on a secluded estate and a Korean woman hired to serve as her new handmaiden, but who is secretly involved in a conman's plot to defraud her of her large inheritance.
