The fiery young woman and the go-with-the-flow guy are about to discover something elemental: how much they actually have in common. 'Elemental' is an original film inspired by Sohn's childhood in New York. "My parents emigrated from Korea in the early 1970s and built a bustling grocery store in the Bronx," said the director.

"We were among many families who ventured to a new land with hopes and dreams -- all of us mixing into one big salad bowl of cultures, languages and beautiful little neighborhoods. That's what led me to 'Elemental.' "Our story is based on the classic elements -- fire, water, land and air," Sohn continued. "Some elements mix with each other, and some don't. What if these elements were alive?"
