To celebrate the home entertainment release of Nobody’s Daughter Haewon, we’ve kindly been provided with THREE DVD copies of Sang-soo’s poignant South Korean drama to give away to our loyal army of devoted cinephiles, kindly provided by the fine folks at the film’s UK distributors StudioCanal.

Told in the chronological style of a diary, the story reflects a young woman’s emotional growth and search for meaning within a remote and isolated village on the edge of Seoul, South Korea. After her mother leaves for Canada in the hope of starting a new life, film student and aspiring actress Haewon (Jung Eunchae) begins to sink into a deep depression. In the hope of finding solace, she reignites an affair with her ex-lover, a much older married professor (Lee Sunkyun). But within the kaleidoscopic inner world of her emotions, her dreams slowly begin to interweave with her reality and evolve into something that will change her life forever.
