Gift

South Korea, 2006 (MIFF 2007)

Director: Lee In-eui

Gift

Lee Hyun-joo is top of her class, her only blemish in life is a persistent blocked nose. One morning, she is horrified when she expels a long worm-like creature from her nose. Free of the worm and her blocked nose, Hyun-joo's intelligence begins to fade, just as a rival classmate's begins to rise. Screened at Pusan.
