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

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...
