Synopsis

An aged dog lives in an empty lot in the secluded town. The camera approaches the people around and ask them ´who the dog is,`. The residents start sharing their own observations and memories of the dog. Through the pieces of stories, certain clues to the life each person has lived also start being revealed.

Review

begins with a stray dog Baek-gu living at the foot of the Namsan in Seoul. The director takes a camera to know how Baek-gu has lived and how the dog has settled down here. Asking around about the history of Baek-gu, people pay attention to the director a little, but no one knows the whole story correctly. Someone gives a weird look at the director following the insignificant old dog, someone testifies one’s observation of Baek-gu with an affectionate voice. Baek-gu is not healthy, doesn’t look good, nor has something extraordinary feature. However, Baek-gu presents ‘things that are left without a name and being forgotten’ beyond the concept of abandoned dog. Being not published on a newspaper, the life never becomes a news. The owner of a supermarket who used to take care of Baek-gu closed his business and a clean and accessible 24-hour convenience store will replace the spot. A ninety-year old man is just a man unable to communicate normally due to his deafness and a seventy-year old woman applies for a make-over program to find beauty and youth back, but at the same time, calms herself down worrying about herself looking silly. The director examines these beings she ran into between her 13th and 15th move as if she tries to grip sands slipping through her fingers. [Park Eun-hye]
