Former actress Sangok (Lee Hyeyoung) is back in Seoul, after living abroad for many years. She stays with her sister Jeongok (Cho Yunhee) in her high-rise apartment and seem to share most of their lives. The siblings sleep late, have breakfast in a café and visit a restaurant owned by Jeongok's son. But through the details of the day (a spill on her blouse, an encounter at her childhood home), it becomes clear that there is much she is not revealing. These mysterious circumstances seem to have something to do with her decision to meet with film director Jaewon (Kwon Haehyo) to discuss her return to acting.

“In Front of Your Face is a mysterious, gentle piece of work, unworldly and effortless”

Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

“Heady promises are made, erotic currents simmer, and time becomes tangible, the conversation and characters so authentic the screen almost breathes.”
