In Seoul, two alternating conversations: an actress is solicited by an amateur; an old poet hosts a fan. The two stars dodge the existential questions of their guests with food, alcohol, guitar playing and naps, games with a cat and rock, paper, scissors. The actress is thinking of giving up her career; the poet is struggling with alcohol and tobacco withdrawal. With the compact eloquence of a haiku, In Our Day invites us to look at what is most important and what makes each day of our lives matter.
