A grandma tells her granddaughter an old story about a woman who kills her nine husbands to eat.
A grandmother tells her granddaughter a story of a lady who devours her nine husbands one by one. Sometimes, the toughest enemies who women have to deal with are themselves. The granddaughter, however, decides to put an end to this woeful history. Though the running time is very short, this film is dramatic enough with a twist in the end. It is also enjoyable to see that it wittingly deconstructs and recreates an oral tradition. (CHO Hye-young)
