Queen of the Morning Calm follows 29-year-old immigrant sex worker Debra (Jung), who struggles with her precocious ten-year-old daughter (Lee) and her child’s semi-absent addict father as she embarks on a journey of emancipation. Debra attempts to escape cycles of abuse and poverty while learning to become a more nurturing mother and discovering her own self-worth. This transformative story starring Jung chronicles a mother and daughter’s at times painful pursuit of happiness.


Ce premier long métrage de fiction de Gloria Kim nous fait découvrir Debra, une immigrante de 29 ans, prostituée, qui en arrache avec sa fillette précoce de 10 ans et le père de celle-ci, un toxicomane presque toujours absent. Désireuse de s’affranchir, elle cherche comme elle le peut à se sortir du cycle de la maltraitance et de la pauvreté. Elle souhaite devenir une meilleure mère nourricière et accroître son estime de soi. Queen of the Morning Calm relate l’évolution et la difficile quête du bonheur d’une mère et de sa fille.
