Professional climber CHOI Se-hyeon, who got recovered from a car accident recently, discovers that she is pregnant just before the Climbing World Championships. As her long-time aspirations are threatened, she struggles to break free from the duties of motherhood. However, at the same time, she receives text messages from ‘herself’ who seems to have been through a quite different life after the car accident. And most importantly, she wants to keep her baby.
KIM HYE-MI majored in Art at Pusan National University and studied animation at the Korean Academy of Film Arts (KAFA). CLIMBING (2020) is her first animated feature film and her project for KAFA’s Feature Animation Course.
