Koreatown: Kyeong is a young singer who moonlights as a doumi at the karaoke bars of Koreatown, Los Angeles. When a mysterious woman hires him to go home with her for the night, Kyeong finds himself crossing a line that takes him beyond the business of crooning to his regular customers at karaoke bars, and into something that alters his understanding of sexuality and objectification.
