On Christmas Eve, in order to shoot Vogue Korea’s special edition, six actresses ranging from their twenties to their sixties come together at a studio. This should be the first attempt to break the rules of the fashion world. The golden rule – actresses” who are accustomed to being in the spotlight should never be in one place for a group photo shoot. A psychological warfare erupts. On top of that, the gems which they were going to shoot with are late due to a snowstorm. They wait endlessly, the crew on the set becomes worried. On the contrary to the worries of the crew, these undaunted and frank actresses get together in a table and start a talk about what it is to live as an actress in Korea.
