Youngho (Shin Seokho) goes to see his father who is tending to a famous patient. He surprises his girlfriend, Juwon (Park Miso), in Berlin where she is studying fashion design. He goes to a seaside hotel to meet his mother and brings his friend Jeongsoo (Ha Seongguk) with him. In each instance, he anticipates an important conversation. But sometimes a shared look, or a shared smoke, can mean as much as anything we could say to those close to us.

For his twenty-fifth feature as director and his first as cinematographer, Hong Sang-soo offers a simple tale of young people on the edge of adulthood. INTRODUCTION cuts to the essence of who we are as people, like an unexpected hug on a winter’s day.

In Korean with English subtitles.
