In the back room of a Korean convenience store, Umma returns as a ghost to shame her daughter Hannah into avenging her suspicious death. While Hannah’s older brother shirks off familial duties in favor of romantic trysts, Hannah embarks on a mission to find Umma’s killer.
Featuring a chorus of ajummas and a healthy dose of revenge, Do It for Umma is an absurd tragicomedy about a young woman trying to gain her dead mother’s approval and protect her family’s honor in the strangest of circumstances.
