Synopsis

Jinhee, who is a Korean immigrant in Syracuse, works at a Korean restaurant. She is troubled by the noise from her neighborhood and does not feel kindness from co-workers. She feels lost and alienated and drifts between her reality and dreams. She tries her best to cling to life and to stay afloat, in spite of her suffering. One day, Jinhee hears a cat's meow, and her mood lifts. Every day after, Jinhee waits for the cat, anticipating the little bit of color and delight the cat brings to her world.
