A man goes to a psychiatrist to try to remember what happened the day his wife disappeared from his life. Meanwhile, his wife wakes up and finds herself lying on a deserted road, having no idea how she got there in the first place. She tries to find her way home. At the same time, her husband drives home to their apartment. Separately, they begin to regain their memories of what happened. Directed by Kim Ji-woon (whose credits include A Tale of Two Sisters, The Good, The Bad, The Weird and I Saw the Devil).

  • Dead All Along: The wife was murdered by her husband before the film starts. The events that happen in her POV is real; the reason why nobody responds to her is because she is a ghost.
  • Fingore - As in severed fingers mysteriously appearing out of nowhere.
  • Ghost Amnesia: The wife initially neither remembers her past life or the fact that she is dead. She slowly learns piece by piece what really happened to her.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: The wife is a ghost, having been murdered by her husband after an argument.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: The wife is dead since before the film begins.
  • Trauma-Induced Amnesia: The man does not clearly remember the event that caused his wife's disappearance, just the fact that it was a tragedy.
