Hong Jong-du is a sensitive and thoughtful Korean, but certainly unsettled. As soon as he got out of prison, he blamed himself for killing a drunk driving man (actually the head of the family was the leader), lives in solitude in marginalization. Determined to apologize to the family of the man he would kill, he goes to his home where he meets the daughter of the dead, Han Gong-ju: a young disabled who leads a life of solitude, practically abandoned by the family in a poor apartment of the houses. Hong Jong-du, in the beginning, attempts to violate her, but soon regrets her unhealthy gesture and, as she tries, returns from the young man, who instead of feeling traumatized, tries some satisfaction to be finally seen as a woman. The two of them have a tender and intense relationship, impossible in a hierarchical and hypocritical society like the one surrounding the two guys: Hong Jong-du is the only man to have liked the girl and to make her discover her femininity. The young man comes, however, surprised in the intimacy and the young man's family denounces him and wants justice. He is thus sentenced for rape and imprisoned again not before performing a generous and plump gesture that reveals his true feelings for the girl. Their love will also resist Hong's condemnation and the young man will find motivations to live in anticipation of his return. Raw and poetic film at the same time that recalls the great cinema of the neorealist season.

NOTIFY ( REGION CODE )
Region code :3(korea and Southeast Asia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau)
This is achieved by way of region-locked DVD players, which will play back only DVDs encoded to their region (plus those without any region code). The American DVD Copy Control Association also requires that DVD player manufacturers incorporate the regional-playback control (RPC) system. However, region-free DVD players, which ignore region coding, are also commercially available, and many DVD players can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs.
What is a REGION CODE?
The idea behind Region Codes for DVD movies was created to control the exportation of movies to other countries, thus eliminating the possibility of purchasing a DVD movie which has yet to be played at a local movie theatre.
