SYNOPSIS

Set against the backdrop of a rapidly expanding Seoul in 1994, a lonely  14-year-old Eun-hee moves through life like a hummingbird searching for a  taste of sweetness wherever she may find it. Deprived of attention from her family, she roams the neighborhood with her best friend, attempts  romantic relationships with both girls and boys alike and is sent to the hospital with an unclear diagnosis. When Young-ji, a new teacher, arrives, she becomes the first adult Eun-hee feels really understands  her.

Berlatarkan kota Seoul di tahun 1994 yang sedang pesat berkembang, seorang remaja 14 tahun yang kesepian bernama Eun-Hee menjalani kehidupan layaknya burung kolibri yang mencari rasa manis dimanapun ia dapat menemukannya. Tak mendapat cukup perhatian dari keluarganya, Eun-Hee menjelajahi lingkungan sekitar bersama teman baiknya, menjalin hubungan romantis dengan lelaki dan perempuan seumurannya, dan dibawa ke rumah sakit karena diagnosis yang tidak jelas. Ketika seorang guru baru bernama Young-Ji datang, ia menjadi orang dewasa pertama yang Eun-Hee rasa benar-benar memahaminya.
