lesbian couple / labor / disability / alternative family
Eunsoo and Yewon are in a same-sex marriage. Their lives are disrupted by the precarious word, 'family.' Also, Soomin is left behind all alone. Eunsoo, Yewon and Soomin are now trying to climb the wall that lies before them.
Take Me Home asks questions about family, focusing on the lives of Eunsoo (WO Mihwa) and Yewon (LEE Yeon), as they constantly face limitations for not being bound as a socially-defined 'family.' The pressure they feel from penetrating social gazes, caught through glimpses of facial expressions that disappear in a flash; the moments they can't give honest responses to colleagues when asked about each other's existence; the moments they think of each other when alone, and the expression that briefly flickers across their faces. After showing the lives of Eunsoo and Yewon, Take Me Home jumps into a new question. Eunhye, Eunsoo's sister, dies in a car accident, so they take in her daughter Soomin (KIM Bomin). What should we call the relationship of these three, a loving couple and a child, if not 'family'?
Take Me Home moves forward without providing an answer for Eunsoo and Yewon. Rather than giving unnecessary comments about them, it raises more questions for those continually forced to prove themselves in society and for those who are afflicted by injustice. If the word 'family' cannot reflect the relationship of people living together while caring for each other, perhaps it's time for us to have a new word. [MIN Jeeyeon]
