In this action film Soo-nam struggles to pay the bills of his husband, who’s in a vegetative state. But in spite of her great effort, the husband seems doomed to never wake up again.
A heroine of disgrace, Soo-nam pursues small goals with huge amounts of bloodshed. Life forced her to that unbalanced situation with magic tricks that include intentional fires, amputations, and all kinds of deaths on the way, as she tries to keep what little she has –including her husband in vegetative state. A black comedy with equal amounts of frenzied speed and electricity, Alice in Earnestland is a non-stop journey through extremely different ways of killing, including a revenge that is carried on with a holy patience. Because even if she tries hard to be kind and sacrifice herself for others in the purest ways, things are too hard for her, except for the terribly easy ways she finds to spread her mortal punches, in a sort of martial art against the craziest and more unfair side of the world.
