SYNOPSIS

Hye-jeong works in a factory on the outskirts of the city. All she wants is to live alone in peace. However, one night, she finds out that she has become a ghost. As a ghost, she goes back in time, day by day, and tries to save herself from harm's way. While doing so, she gets a glimpse of the scars and sorrows of her neighbors, and realizes the deaths of her neighbors are all closely related.​

 

PROGRAM NOTE

This film invites us to the landscape of redevelopment. The setting of the film, which is around the Korean Thanksgiving Day, meets the desolateness of the houses being demolished, adding a lonely atmosphere. Although Hye-jeong lives with 3 housemates, she is alone as if she is living on her own. Even if her house is a living space, it is an anonymous space. The film follows Hye-jeong, who has become a ghost like her desire to become like a ghost, not being connected to anyone.

 

People do not see and feel Hye-jeong who now a ghost. She manages to see potential for solidarity after meeting a girl who once asked for her help. The space where the girl stays is the ruins of a semi-basement. The unconscious that the film portrays is the disconnected world that no one looks into except for ghosts. 

 

The characters in the film pass through various places in a city, such as a factory, abandoned house, hotel room, streets and a row house village in a redevelopment area. However, none of the places are represented as a private space of a vibrant character. A weary wandering of young women who roam about a grey area where they cannot have an attachment to. It is a landscape of the here and now that the film vividly portrays. [KIM Hyunmin]
