  • Period: Contemporary

A middle-class family’s anxiously-acquired status is threatened when the eldest son and his girlfriend (both in their early twenties) appear on a secretly-filmed porn clip that is posted online. The couple try their best to put the whole thing behind them; their parents however find this impossible. The resulting intergenerational battle becomes a news sensation that brings buried tensions to the surface and tests familial bonds.

Teen Couple is a universally-relatable story full of bittersweet comedy about the odd ways in which different people – and different generations – deal with shame, in a country where shame dictates nearly everything: from what one studies at university to who one ends up marrying.
