SYNOPSIS

Na-mi and Sun-woo, two loner girls, plan to commit suicide instead of going on a school trip. But they discover the happy life of Chae-lin, who caused them trouble just before committing suicide. They put their plans on hold and leave their hometown to seek revenge, heading to the unfamiliar city of Seoul. 

PROGRAM NOTE

Hwang Sun-woo and Song Na-mi are victims of bullying led by Park Chae-lin. Even after Chae-lin left for Seoul, the damage is still being done. In the end, Sun-woo and Na-mi plan and execute suicide instead of a school trip. Na-mi is furious to learn of Chae-lin's happy life in Seoul in the face of death and decides to damage Chae-lin's life before she kills herself. However, they hesitate when Chae-lin confronts them and says she wants to apologize. Chae-lin says she will pay for her sin to go to paradise and asks Sun-woo and Na-mi to forgive her. From this point, the film moves from a micro-narrative about the background and relationship of Sun-woo, Na-mi, and Chae-lin to a macro-narrative that discourses on religious questions of salvation and the illusions presented by pseudo-religion. It depicts that the wisdom to distinguish between the need to preserve human dignity as an end in itself and the evil of using people as tools and means to benefit a particular person or group is not a one-time occurrence. Sun-woo and Na-mi go through the various processes of division and conflict between individuals and individuals, as well as between individuals and organizations. In this way, they develop the capacity for insight and step into the seemingly impossible possibility of reconciliation and solidarity. Performance and direction make us say “Oki! Oki!” to the paradox of Hail to Hell. [HONG Eunhwa]
