The film is set in the Philippines. Naru Shin and Purlin are going to return to their hometown after getting married. However, Naru Shin ends up killing his father since the father urges Purlin to have sexual relations with him. The film depicts a nightmare-like murder case that takes place in a remote village. In a sense, the film criticizes the Marcos Administration.
