Born in a walled village, Yeuk-lam wears short hair and dresses like a man, which is against her will. Her father is always away and her mother, a hysteric person. Yeuk-lam lives a life that is more lonely and challenging than any other 16-year-old girls. Can she leave this suffocating situation the way her friend Ka-yeung does?
Film is never an individual project. We observed different sorts of emotions from our surroundings, and through the exhaustion of life to get inspired and make a film. I thank everyone who participated in Conditioned so that the story can be properly recorded.
