program notes

In 1972, at the end of the war, a platoon of South Korean troops was dispatched to R Point under a special order. The mission is to find the soldiers who disappeared there six months ago but are still sending rescue signals. However, the missing soldiers are nowhere to be seen, and a terrifying incident begins. The achievement of this year's Korean film simply by exquisitely capturing the humiliation and ravages of war in modern Korean history through the customs of the horror genre.
