Verida works in a beauty salon, addicted to social media. She is engaged to a man chosen by her family, and like many girls her age, she is forced to gain a substantial amount of weight in a tradition called gavage, which considers a voluptuous body as a sign of great beauty. As the wedding approaches, she challenges the things which she always thought normal.
Verida must get married in 3 months. According to her hometown’s tradition, Verida needs to gain weight to create an ample body that appeals to her future husband. As an obedient daughter, she wakes up in the middle of the night to drink milk and eats couscous to faithfully stick to the strict manual. Meanwhile, she is attracted to other man and starts questioning whether following the conditions of marriage is what she really wants. Flesh Out carefully observes the female experience exposed to the traditions which still exist in this century. [JANG Byungwon]
