When her husband leaves to work in a mine, Sam is left to spend more time on her own. She goes to a bar for consolation, but gazes of men at the bar are tough and threatening. On her way back home, she encounters the ghost of a native girl. Sam starts her search for the girl’s identity. Unlike a powerless male neighbor who becomes insane on the barren landscape of masculine violence, Sam assuages the ghost’s grudges and receives peace of mind by facing the nature of violence. Using the form of a horror film, director Beck Cole shows his talent to describe how a woman copes with violence and isolation. (Denise Hyuk-sang Lee)
