Seoung Won Won

MY AGE OF SEVEN

Won Seoung Won (South Korea) tells an idyllic story about dreams from her childhood. My Age of Seven, nurtured by Korean legends, is about a little girl who wakes up in her room, overgrown with plants, realising that her mother has disappeared. It is the beginning of a surreal journey through the town and countryside.
