Kim Ki-duk's daring portrayal of a dysfunctional family follows a spurned wife who is seeking revenge against her adulterous husband. In a fit of burning rage, she grabs a knife and tries to castrate him. He fights her off, so instead she lashes out at her teenage son. Distraught and driven by guilt, the father explores desperate methods in order to help his maimed son.
