Do Woo runs an old motel – adjacent to a lake with thousands of Korean War victims at its bottom – as well as caring for his mother who has dementia. One wintry day she disappears without a trace. In her stead, a cute little dog appears. Everyone helps kind-hearted, somewhat shy Do Woo search for her. However, when his mother isn’t found, rumours arise that he may have terminateed her. Hashe started having doubts himself? It doesn’t help that he swallowed her tranquillisers on the day she went missing, and can’t remember a thing.

The disappearance gradually morphs into a disturbing psychological drama. The motel’s appeal to potential Self-harms, a suspicious kid nosing around, and unexpected visions of horror mean Do Woo’s imagination and reality are increasingly intertwined. What really happened? “A terrifying thing, sunk into the abyss of man,” is the motto Lim Sang Su gave his first feature film.
