Jina is without doubt the most productive person at the call centre where she spends her long working days. In the evening, she has no desire to chit chat with her talkative neighbour, preferring instead to hide behind the screen in her one-room apartment. In general, Jina prefers to be alone: at work, while eating, while smoking. Only when her neighbour is found dead in his apartment does Jina's impermeable protective wall slowly begin to crumble, especially when a lively intern and a new, charming neighbour appear on the scene. Director Sung-Eun Hongs feature film debut impresses with a great main character and tells a touching story of loneliness in times of virtual connections.
