The feature debut of South Korean filmmaker Song Gyeong-shik, this satirical comedy tells the tale of an extremely unlikely senatorial candidate. When the death of a leading politician leaves the two predominant political parties with 136 seats each in the senate, everyone turns to the town of Surak, where the deciding votes will be cast. Prompted to run against ruling party candidate Oh Man-bong when he promises to rid the town of prostitution, outspoken prostitute Go Eun-bi (Ye Ji-weon) takes her fellow streetwalkers' advice and begins campaigning against the prudish politician.
