Director: HYE-JUNG SHIM
REPUBLIC OF KOREA
A Bedsore centres around the living situation of Chang-sik, a retired man, his bedridden wife, Gil-soon, and her live-in caregiver Sook-ok, an undocumented Korean-Chinese immigrant. Tensions begin to rise when Gil-soon develops a bedsore. Chang-sik’s middle-aged daughter Ji-soo is concerned that Sook-ok isn’t doing enough for her mother. Meanwhile, Chang-sik’s unsuccessful son Moon-soo isn’t helping at all, instead wallowing in bitterness over old family grudges. When Chang-sik offers to marry Sook-ok so she can get a visa, these simmering resentments boil over and threatens to jeopardise them all.
