After being abandoned by her birth mother at an early age, Jin-young is raised by a stepmother. As time passed by, the stepmother falls ill with senile dementia and is sent to a nursing home. Meanwhile, Jin-young freeloads at the house of Ja-young, the stepsister. As an aspiring screenwriter, Jin-young keeps getting rejected by the film production company because she continues to insist on her screenplay about zombies. At the production company, Jin-young meets Director Hwang, a senior alumnus who she really hated. From then on, the film begins to take off. Then, Jin-young meets Ja-young' s friend, Jamie. Jin-young drinks with Jamie and Jamie kisses Jin-young. Jin-young' s first kiss! Jin-young thinks she' s in love with Jamie. While confused about her first kiss, she also kisses Director Hwang but she doesn' t feel anything. Firmly believing that she loves Jamie, she runs straight for home. But, Jin-young is shocked to find out that Ja-young and Jamie are lovers. After a fight with Ja-young, Jin-young declares her independence and sets out to find her birth mother.

Director's Note
Thirty years old. At this age, one is at a turning point in life. Wouldn' t it be the second adolescence where one worries about one' s own dream from reality? Work, love, and family. Through Jin-young' s character who still worries about things she worried about during her first adolescence, I wanted to show that we, as adults, may still be adolescents who are not sanctioned even when we drink, smoke, or have a romantic relationship. We are still growing up.
