Reach for the SKY

Reach for the SKY

Every year, on the 2nd Thursday of November, the entire country of South-Korea is put to the test.
That day, more than half a million senior high school students take part in the National University Exam, better
known as Suneung.
‘Reach for the SKY’ tells the story of several South-Korean high school students, their families and teachers, as
they prepare for the annual National Exam. The exam will not only determine where the high school seniors will
attend university but ultimately also their status in the Korean hierarchical society.
