Reach For The SKY

Every year half a million young South Koreans take their baccalaureate. After twelve years of school, it’s time to show what you’re made of including in the areas of Korean-language, mathematics and English. The results will determine whether you will enter the university and the time before the exams means studying hard from dawn to sunset with the intense pressure from home. We get to follow three students during the year leading up to the decisive day. We also meet a narcissistic private teacher that has reached stardom in a society where your reputation depends on which university you studied at.
