Three Sisters tells the story of three sisters who at first glance don’t seem to have any problems: The eldest sister Hee-sook (KIM Sun-young) is a busy wife and mother who prefers to apologize instead of showing her true feelings. Middle sister Mi-yeon (MOON So-ri) wants to keep the appearance of a perfect life, but her husband’s affair is a hindrance. The youngest sister Mi-ok (JANG Yoon-ju) is a frustrated playwright who cannot live without alcohol. When the three sisters gather for their father’s birthday, old memories and deep wounds from their childhood are brought to light.
LEE Seung-won has been a director, screenwriter, and actor for film and theater since his short film Contradiction was invited to the Jeonju International Film Festival in 2005. He wrote the script and also directed Three Sisters.
