A female supplement to Mandala, this searing drama gives Kang one of her best roles. Unloved at home and in trouble at school, Sunnyo tries to become a Buddhist nun. But the Sister Superior refuses to ordain her, saying that her mission lies elsewhere. Sunnyo’s travails in the world of work and sex are juxtaposed with the story of another nun who tries for asceticism and fails.
