This very heavy Korean drama will be most comprehensible to those intimate with Korean culture. It is the enigmatic tale of H. (AKA Alex Kaufman). He is first seen attempting to check into a ramshackle inn. Unfortunately, the proprietor insists the inn is closed. Still he stays and begins sharing with her his clouded past, giving clues all the while as to his true identity. Forty minutes later H. is seen conversing with the caretaker of an abandoned manufacturing plant. After that he meets other off-beat characters and with each embarks upon highly intellectual and spiritual discussions about the nature of eternity and time.
