Description: Hyunshik, an ex-cop in deep emotional pain and obviously on the lam, arrives at the end of the road, emotionally and literally, where he finds an isolated lake dotted with floating huts-a hotel of sorts-painted, ironically, in the cheery pastels of the 1950s. The hotel serves as a retreat for fishing and a host of other sordid activities. Its proprietor is Heejin, a young woman who is beautiful and elusive. She never speaks, even when supplementing her income by performing sexual favors for her unsavory guests. When the new boarder arrives, she takes an almost predatory approach to winning his attention.
