A lonely fisherman goes deep into the dark woods. Reaching the river, he casts his line and waits patiently. The hours go by with nothing happening until, once night has fallen, the fisherman reels in a strange creature. It’s not a fish, but a young woman completely dressed in white and who can’t stop sobbing the word “daddy”... Before embarking on the adventure of his first film shot in English, Park Chan-wook decided to hook up with his younger brother, Park Chan-kyong, to direct this unusual medium-length film, shot entirely with an iPhone 4. You know what they say: good things come in small packages.
