Glass Garden

Shin Su-won’s biotech romance centres around the emotions of a young woman and her enigmatic connection to nature and possibly to an ancient curse. At the same time, it is the story of two outcast souls looking for rehabilitation and finding it as their lives become entangled. While Jaeyeon’s research into photosynthesis with humans offers the possibility for all-out body horror, the director takes a different turn, focusing on the characters instead.
