South Korean filmmaker Manki Kwon makes a critically lauded debut with his drama thriller about wrongdoing and redemption. It tells the story of a cleaner, grieving the death of her young son, who is forced to confront her past when a young ex-con becomes her co-worker. Their paths have crossed before – the young man was kidnapped as a child, and his new colleague was the perpetrator. The director and his cast build up the tension to jittery effect.

An incredibly impressive debut from South Korea about chance and redemption.
