House of Hummingbird is a touching coming-of-age drama centered on the quiet, unexceptional eighth-grader Eunhee. It is 1994 in Seoul. The South is in the grips of World Cup fever, while the North mourns its recently-deceased dictator. Euhee registers all of this only in passing. Drifting through her days, she feels like an outsider everywhere: at school, where she struggles to find meaning in the friendship of her peers, and at home, where family life consists of putting up with her parents’ constant quarreling and her brother’s bullying. Yet, through it all, nothing really moves her— that is, until she encounters her school’s new Chinese tutor and, with unexpected intensity, an unlikely friendship develops between them.
