Ji-won’s mother is in critical condition. Minjoo’s parents are divorced. The two kids sit in an empty classroom on a rainy day. Are they unable to go home because they don’t have umbrellas? Or do they just not want to go home? Summer Rain is a story about two girls who are going through difficult times. They still need an umbrella at their age, but they must walk in the rain. The film embraces the inner beings of these two girls in a static and neat way, effectively utilizing rain and umbrella as symbols. It also uses props like flower pots to add to the story that could have felt as dull. A tranquil film that deals with emotions adequately.
