The Park Family is the picture of aspirational wealth. The Kim family is rich in nothing other than street smarts. When these two houses are brought together the Kim family senses a golden opportunity in providing the Parks with services such as tutoring and art lessons. The two families strike up a bond with their mutual exchange of the Park’s high reward for the Kims’ indispensable services. However, when a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. This thrilling dark comedy provides a unique examination of the evils of class inequalities and the powers of wealth. Introduction by Hyeyon Moon (UVA)
