Writer Jung-suk aimlessly roams the Korean wilderness. 15 years previously, his wife left him and their daughter behind and disappeared. When Jung-suk comes across a young girl, Alice, who is also looking for someone who disappeared, clues start suddenly appearing to the fates of both women. Director and screenplay author Shin Yeon-shick develops this thriller material into a fascinating fairy tale in which mythical elements come together to form a multi-layered allegory on the modern wish for self-discovery.
