Continuing her adventure to reclaim her best friend, young Mija (AN SEO HYUN) simultaneously takes on big business and the big city – both for the first time – in the Netflix original film OKJA, from
genre-defying writer/director Bong Joon Ho.

 

Mija sets out to rescue her friend and that journey becomes complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators and consumers, each battling to control the fate of her friend. Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer, The Host) begins with the gentlest of premises – the bond between man and animal – and ultimately creates a distinct and layered vision of the world that addresses the animal inside us all.

 

 

Look out for it when it premieres exclusively on Netflix on 28 June 2017.
