Jin, girl rock drummer, plays with her friend Suhye in a bar of Hongdae, the artist neighborhood of Seoul. A K-pop producer sees them but focuses on Suhye, like a future star that he could shape with his financial power. This drives Jin angry, and when a drummer is angry, she may hit hard.

This film highlights the people hidden in the shadows. Like the heroine of the movie, a drummer hidden in the shadow of a singer. Like the independent rock music they make, hidden behind K-pop. Like the bar where they do their concert, “Strange Fruit”, hidden in a basement of Seoul. These people are the ones who especially make beat the heart of our cities.
