1.In Between Seasons
How does a mother deal with the problem that her son is gay? The film challenges Korean taboo topics.
An ordinary middle-aged mother suddenly suffered a series of blows: her son Soo Hyun was in a vegetative state after a car accident, and then she divorced her husband. In the process of taking care of her son, she discovered that Soo Hyun and Yong Jun, who had an accident with him, were in a homosexual relationship! It stands to reason that mother and Yongjun should be on the same page. However, before Soo Hyun's accident, Soo Hyun's mother liked this polite and sensible Yong Jun very much. Until the accident happened, Soo-hyun's mother took care of Soo-hyun and isolated Yong-joon for a while, but Yong-joon did not hesitate to sell himself to find her and help her tirelessly. At first, it was probably because of his love and guilt for Soo-hyun; after that, he developed a relationship with Soo-hyun's mother. Soo Hyun’s mother got to know her son better through Yong Jun—it turned out that she didn’t know Soo Hyun so much before; Yong Jun only felt the warmth of the family through Soo Hyun’s mother—which was lacking since childhood.

4.A Courtesan With Flowered Skin
This woman is very special. As long as her body heats up, cherry blossoms will bloom on her snow-white skin.
Her name is Asagiri, a prostitute from the Edo period in Japan. Before meeting Banjiro, Asagiri was a wandering girl who didn't eat fireworks. She faces all kinds of men every day, and she is already numb. She accompanies the smiling face all day long, but she hates the pain deeply in her heart. Because she believes that a man's affection for a woman is just for fun. When her sister Hachitsu received a man's courtship letter, she scoffed and reprimanded. A major sacrificial event changed the trajectory of Asagiri's life. Because of carelessness, Asagiri fell. Banjiro came to Asagiri intimately, picked her up, settled down to the side of the road and sat down. He ran back into the crowd by himself to find the lost geta for Asagiri. After putting on the clogs for Asagiri, he gently treated the wound on her hand. Asagiri didn't dare to look directly at Hanjiro, so he could only laugh at himself embarrassedly and meanly. Because I am a prostitute, I am not even qualified to love. The two came to the cabin, and their suppressed feelings for each other could no longer be suppressed.
