Synopsis

Working at a transgender bar, Min-a is a female with male genitals. When her colleague is assaulted by a male customer, she steps in to help, only to accidentally kill the assaulter. At the court, Min-a insists that she had no choice – she had to protect her colleague - but the situation is not favorable to her. Taking advantage of her sexual identity, the prosecutor drives the case as if the murder were a result out of jealousy, and Min-a's own lawyer does not pay attention to her situation.

Presenting the transgender human rights issues as a court drama, Half tries to correct the myriad misunderstandings toward transgender people with director Se-Yeon Kim taking a true story about a transgender person jailed with male inmates as the inspiration for the film.
