25-year-old Juri has been languishing away since the pandemic hit, living in her family’s apartment, playing video games all day and ordering in take-out food. Her mother Young-shim on the other hand, has been working hard to keep her kim-bap shop alive. When Young-shim has to leave town suddenly to take care of Juri’s grandmother, she has had enough and gives Juri an ultimatum. Take over the shop while she’s away, or move out!

The unenthusiastic Juri must step up to the plate and perfect her mother’s diverse kim-bap recipes lest she scare off the customers! As she climbs this steep learning curve, busybody neighborhood aunties, attractive regulars, and absent-minded customers keep her on her toes. As her mother continues to delay her return, Juri learns that running a kim-bap shop may be about more than kim-bap after all.

The first feature from director Kwak Min-seung, ROLLING is a delightful quarter-life coming of age film with subtle depth under its simple veneer. A kim-bap pairing is definitely recommended for this viewing!
