In this hard-hitting South Korean entry to the 2013 Seattle International Film Festival, we begin with a gang rape by four drunken young men. Ten years later we are with the only fellow who had been been bullied into it: Sung-Gong has made a life for himself; he works in a clothing factory, lives alone, and ponders the past.

After joining a Christian church she attends, he becomes acquainted with Jang-mi, that long-ago victim; he becomes fixated on her and her lingering problems. She had been unconscious at the time, so has no idea who he is.

First-time director Don-ku Lee gives us an uncompromising look at the long-term effects the crime has on its victim, and how an obsessive guilt has persisted with one of the perpetrators.

Expect violence (no gunshots) as he gamely tries to take matters into his own hands.
