Frank M. Ahearn,
A family moves into the suburbs of Gyunggi-do. A while later a girl named Mi-rim goes missing and chaos takes over the village. Mi-rim's father searches for his daughter and while visiting the police station he stumbles upon a criminal record from one of the family members that just moved. Mi-rim's father and the villagers threaten and pacify Sejin and his family. The film follows the genre conventions of a thriller yet it also contains people's prejudices and oppression. Sejin's past record as a convict rids him of his individuality and his sister is on the brink of losing her job as a kindergarten teacher. The film questions what is true violence. The result, violence does not just include person to person, but can be silent brought on by a community that leads to a sacrifice of an individual. Such is the typical mechanism, murdering individuality through the violence of a group. Written by

its hard to say much about this movie without spoiling things, but here goes...a 7 yr old girl goes missing around the same time a known child molester moves into the community. When the girl's father finds out this newcomer is a convicted sex offender, he straight away assumes this man is the individual who has taken his daughter (as do the cops), and posts pictures of his criminal conviction for molestation all over town. The man, along with his mother and sister have already been run out of a few towns and he again becomes a pariah and the family is asked to leave town...
not exactly fun family viewing, but a decent movie if your motto is FTW...
