Synopsis by Tom Vick

A two-character drama shot in black-and-white on digital video, Camel(s) stars Myung-Shin Park and Dae-Yeon Lee as a businessman and a pharmacy clerk from Seoul who drive to a seaside resort for a weekend affair. Through conversations over meals, in bed, and while driving or walking around the resort, a few details emerge about their lives and families back home, how they met, and why they have embarked on their a relationship which never seems to come across as very satisfying. By isolating his characters, and limiting the audience's knowledge of their lives and backgrounds, director Ki-Yong Park makes Camel(s) a subtle drama that emphasizes the dissatisfaction that seems to grip both protagonists.
