It was shot entirely on the Apple iPhone 4, and was financially supported by KT (South Korea’s current exclusive distributor of the iPhone), which supplied the duo with 150m (US$133,447). It was screened to over 100 reporters on January 11, 2011, and opened for public release on January 27.
A man casually sets up for a fishing trip at the waters edge. Evening comes and a tug on his line presents him with the body of a woman in burial clothes. However she does not stay dead as she begins talking to him. She has a flashback of a ritual in which she is plunged into a tub of water while family and relatives shake bells around her. The woman then cuts a long piece of cloth with two blades between her hands.
