In this modern take on an old Korean folktale, filial guilt and trauma are the name of the game. Su-mi is happily reunited with her sister Su-yeon after being released from an institution, but neither are thrilled about returning home. Their widowed father has remarried, with new wife Eun-joo presiding over their home, which the girls resent Eun-joo for. They try their best to resume everyday life until strange events start occurring. Shadowy figures appear in unlikely places, keepsakes are vandalized, everyone is gripped by suspicion. As unexplained incidents pile up, the house seethes with hushed accusations, sexual tension, and abuse. But are the specters just in Su-mi’s mind, or are unearthly spirits manipulating the household?
