Synopsis
Worked to exhaustion, prominent executive Hyo-hee dreams of a woman beckoning to her, who may be her long-lost twin. Hyo-hee is kidnapped by fisherwomen and brought to a remote island where a farmer purchases her. He insists she is his wife and the mother of his child. “Married” to her captor, she seems trapped in her new life. This film captures the nightmarish anxieties of life as a modern woman, where not even social stature can stave off festering hostility or fear of reprisal, and “civilized society” is but an illusion.
