Synopsis

Sangyun’, a boy living alone in a secluded place of a village, visits the funeral of village Pastor ‘Kang’’s young only son ‘Faith’ who was brutally murdered by the unknown. While Pastor Kang’s mind is collapsing from his son’s death, Sangyun tells him that he had seen Faith on the day of the incident. Together, they reach the scene of the murder and Sangyun reveals everything to Pastor Kang.

Director's Note

As the Motive for a story about ‘Abraham and Isaac’ of Genesis and the crucifixion of Christ, I want to ask about expiation and forgiveness, meaning of reconciliation and the possibility through the character's action and the scene that just gnaw and kill each other as burnt offering lambs of themselves.
