Synopsis by Augustine Chay

South Korean director/co-writer Lee Chang-dong’s unconventional thriller is loosely based on Haruki Murakami’s 1992 short story “Barn Burning”. Ah-in Yoo stars as Jongsu, a poor young man who falls in love with a beautiful young dancer named Haemi Jong-seo Jun. He becomes angry and insecure when she becomes romantically entangled with Ben (Steven Yeun), an eccentric young millionaire who claims to be occasionally impelled to burn greenhouses.
