A black nurse takes vigilante justice against inner-city drug dealers after her sister becomes their latest victim.
Sun-hee (Yum Jung-ah) is a middle-aged mother of two who works as a cashier alongside Hae-mee (Moon Jeong-hee), a single mother. Both are also friendly with Soon-rae (Kim Young-ae), a female custodian nearing retirement age, and junior manager Dong-jun (Kim Gang-woo), who is the only male representative of the store’s labour union. When the store’s contract workers are abruptly laid off, the four band together and join their fellow employees in staging a series of increasingly impassioned protests. The typically shy and passive Sun-hee, thrust to the demonstrations’ front lines, discovers within herself untapped resources of determination and resilience — which has an unexpected effect on her relationship with her estranged son, Tae-young (played by K-pop idol D.O. in his screen debut). The workers, too, attain a deeper understanding of their situation, coming to realize not just their precarious position under the rule of their corporate employer but also the power they can wield by taking a mutual stand.
Kang (The Chaser’s Kim Yoon-seok) is captain of a fishing boat crewed by rough men who are used to the harsh realities of life at sea. Their regular fishing runs net them only a meagre income for their families back home, so when a more lucrative opportunity comes up, Kang grabs it. The job: smuggle a group of ethnic Koreans leaving China for new lives in South Korea. It’s risky — and illegal — but offers the prospect of bricks of cash. Desperate migrants or dead fish: Kang doesn’t care what he brings back to port if it means money.
His crew is a more complex mix of individuals, including Dong-sik (actor and K-pop star Park Yu-chun), an inexperienced young sailor. He strikes up a romance with a migrant named Hong-mae (Han Ye-ri), giving her a “first class” hiding spot in the engine room while the others are left in more dangerous circumstances.
The soundtrack album for the indie comedy Frank features the film’s original music composed by Stephen Rennicks, as well as the songs performed by the film’s cast.
