Shortly before summer holidays, the four schoolgirls Si-yeon (SEOL Si-yeon), Yeon-woo (BAE Yeon-woo), So-jung (PARK So-jung) and Song-hee (HAN Song-hee) receive a strange assignment from their teacher: They are supposed to photograph the end of the world. A bit perplexed at first, the four decide to take the subway to the outskirts of the city. But this is only the beginning of their journey.
With their feature film debut, directors KWON Min-pyo and SEO Han-sol deliver an adventure film of a somewhat different (and quieter) kind. Instead of unexplored territories in faraway lands, in Short Vacation the student’s curiosity turns everyday places into strange worlds. The improvised dialogues help to authentically portray the perspectives of the schoolgirls.
