After graduating from the police academy, Young Nam (Bae Doona, Cloud Atlas) rises to the ranks of upper management in Seoul, but a drinking problem gets her transferred to a small seaside town. On her first day as the small precinct’s chief, she bumps into the mysterious Dohee (Kim Sae Ron), a troubled young girl excluded by her local community and suffering at the hands of bullies. When Young Nam catches Dohee’s stepfather, Yong Ha (Song Sae Byeok) beating her she intervenes and becomes a maternal figure for the troubled teen. When family tragedy strikes and Yong Ha becomes even more violent, Young Nam is compelled to protect the girl from her family by letting her move in. All is well with this unconventional arrangement until Dohee’s drunken father decides he wants her back. Having premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, A Girl At My Door is a fresh and rare gem, directed and written by one of the few female filmmakers to have emerged from South Korea (Boo Ji Young, who directed Cart, is another) and produced by Lee Changdong (Poetry, Secret Sunshine).
