Se Shin Sa
Sook is an undocumented Korean immigrant who works at a spa in Korean town, Los Angeles. Her job is to peel off the customers’ dead skin. While working this unrewarding and difficult job, on top of living alone, she gets a phone call from a student filmmaker, Hong, who wants to have an interview with her. On the interview day, Hong shows her classic paintings of Ingres depicting beautiful women in a public bath and offers to take pictures of Sook replicating the women in the paintings as a gift to her.
