This movie crosses the borders of Drama and Horror with an intense story of a young woman who is mistreated and almost slaved by her husband and the rest of the (few) people who live in a small island near the mainland, in South Korea. However the movie doesn't really start with this character but with another girl who lived in that island when she was a child but now lives in Seoul and is a "modern woman" in opposition to the people of the isle who live like farmers. The plot begins when this second girl after some problems in Seoul decides to take a rest and visit the isle. Is in that moment we met the girl who is mistreated and the paths of these two women cross again like in the past
It's a crossed story about friendship, about courage, vengeance and redemption. The movie is intense mostly on the psychological side and shows us that when one person is mistreated to the edge can one day search for revenge! I appreciated the end and its message of redemption.
