It's very skilfully worked. A young chancer (Jae Hee) breaks into houses while their owners are away and makes himself at home, doing the laundry and watering the plants before he moves on. Then he meets an abused wife (Lee Seung-Yeon), who accompanies him on his curious house calls; the two find happiness until her brutish husband and the law catch up with them.

While impossible to guess how the film will progress, one feels utterly spellbound by its mysterious characters, its otherworldly atmosphere and its insistence on the value of a good golf swing.
