‘A character study that morphs … into a teasing mystery and eventually a full-blown thriller.’
A smouldering mystery-drama about a young man’s romantic longing and a mysterious stranger.
Outside a Seoul shopping mall, delivery driver Jong-su is approached by Hae-mi, a woman who claims to remember him from school. Before long he is smitten, only for Hae-mi to leave for Africa, then return with enigmatic playboy Ben.
