Deliverance-style backwoods horror gets a Korean makeover in this rarely seen gem from the late nineties, a compelling genre work that comments on the hypocrisy and savage violence that lurk inside ordinary men. A group of city dwellers arrives at a remote mountain trout farm for a weekend getaway, but after the first night of convivial drinking, their vacation goes awry. At first, a tense run-in with some local hunters unnerves the husbands, while the women harbor secret feelings of lust and jealousy for the trout farmer. When they come upon a hapless country boy peeping on one of the women, they’re quick to blame him for all their woes.
