Juhee (15, F) roves runaway teenager clubs and meets Jung-hyuk for money. They live together but she gets abandoned after she becomes pregnant. She returns home with no choice and suffers from domestic violence again. She runs out and calls Jung-hyuk, but he never answers.
When the film starts, you see a young girl’s back, walking at night. Based on the narration, she seems to call a man. She ran away from home and doesn’t have a place to stay. He is heading to a public toilet where she will kill time until she finds a place to spend the night. In the next scene, a man gets a call from his daughter who studies abroad. How are the man and the girl related? They are connected via phone. As the man’s time crosses with the girl’s time, she makes a call, but the man doesn’t receive one. Throughout the film, phones ring or vibrate. It clearly shows the terror coming from a guilt-free man. Juhee/17/B leaves a lasting impression by dealing with the issue of sexual abuse against minors within a genre frame and cornering the person who doesn’t regret his wrongdoings. (LEE Dahyeh)
