TIME TABLE
SYNOPSIS

The neon sign of the Itaewon club "Trans" lights up. The show of More, a dancer with 20 years of experience, begins and the audience cheers and tips freely over the stage. More's dream was to be a "ballerina." People said to him, "Abandon your femininity," and his dreams were thwarted. John Cameron Mitchell of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, who visited Korea for a performance, accidentally saw More's show and left him with the meaningful words, “Let's meet in New York.” Then one day, an invitation for performance arrives from New York.

DIRECTING INTENTION

This documentary is a Drag Show which More performs on the stage called world, while also being a petition she files to the general public who refuses to recognize her as its member. I attempt to picture an artist’s bildungsroman challenging her limits in a new way, via the medium of musical combined with documentary.
