Jun (Paul Lee) is an illegal immigrant from Korea, working in a gas station under a exploitation and abusive boss. Hyeon (Yeom Hyunjoon) is the boy of a married businessman who put him on a colorful apartment near the government headquarters in Yeouido. Both young men are in trouble. Jun did not have a formal certificate and papers limited him to death work (petrol stations, leaflets, and finally male sex workers) and so he was always afraid of being arrested and deported. Hyeon, who is supposed to be present whenever his biological father “needs” him, stifles in his market ‘prison’. The two finally found each other through a website on the Internet, with catastrophic results. The sudden convergence of their opposite lives gives Kim the necessary signals for a series of reflections on “statelessness”.
