Quiet spinster Jeong-Eun’s strained relationship with her mother reaches an apex. Hope of escape comes when her long absent brother returns as a pious missionary. An unbearable dinner reunion is interrupted by a cryptic phone call to the brother, sending him into a panic. In confidence to Jeong-Eun, he reveals himself as a sham, too far in debt to a sadistic gambling den bent on body mutilation. Jeong-Eun promises to clear his debt on the condition he takes care of their mother. She then abandons her passive nature, and tip toes past her own moral line.
