Leading TV news anchor Jung Se-ra (Chun Woo-hee) is under immense pressure, her career driven by her suffocating mother (Lee Hye-yeong) and jeopardised by younger female rival reporters, even as she conceals a broken marriage to keep up appearances. One evening, Se-ra gets a call at the station from a young woman who, with her daughter, is the victim of a home invasion. What ought to be a scoop, will in fact cast Se-ra adrift, while the viewer, along with the caller’s psychiatrist Cho In-ho (Shin Ha-kyun), will struggle to work out what connects these women.

Jeong Ji-yeon’s mesmerising psychological thriller plays out its genre tropes to dizzying perfection, while also addressing the inequalities and traumas which women both face and hand down in Korean society.

The Anchor screens as part of the London Korean Film Festival, one of the longest running and most respected festivals dedicated to Korean cinema in the world. Its line-ups consist of everything from the country’s most successful blockbusters to thought-provoking independents from its finest auteurs.
