One summer in the 1980s, a 10-year-old girl, Sara lives in dull suburbia with only a small front yard and a park at the end of the street. Sara gets a crush on a gay man, who sells his body as a gay prostitute in a public restroom at the park, and along with her friend\'s brother, an alcoholic and a big braggart who is dressed only in underwear. The two men are best friends for her and eager for her to get out of her monotonous everyday life. This is a black comedy of childhood when even bright sunshine seems ruthless. (KIM Sunah)
