Tired and bored by her dull daily life, a young housewife mourns her lost American lover. Inside her, the skeleton woman, hidden into the dark, is waiting to be saved.
Tired and bored by her dull daily life, a young housewife, who is in her thirties, pines for her lost American lover. However, she longs for a life elsewhere badly enough not to care about whoever he is. She is fatigued with everything, and feels that there is no purpose in her life. Meanwhile, the skeleton woman in her waits to be taken out from the dark. This is a melodrama which brings the narrative from ‘Skeleton Woman’, the Inuit people’s tale, and expresses its fragile beauty with a delicate touch. (CHO Hye-young)
