What waits on the other side of technology, and the innovations of the modern world? Korea is ground zero for an undead pandemic, as one manGÇÖs rotten trash brings on a zombie apocalypse. A high-tech repairman struggles as a robot finds his higher mind and challenges the of consciousness. And one family, one lost billiard ball, and one misguided internet order bring on the end of the world. From acclaimed and visionary Korean directors Kim Jee-woon (THE LAST STAND, A BITTERSWEET LIFE) and Im Pil-sung (HANSEL & GRETEL) comes a harrowing and blackly humourous dream of society in this modern age. STORY 1: A BRAVE NEW WORLD Seok-woo is a researcher whose family goes on a trip, leaving him behind. When his friend sets him up on a blind date, Seok-woo just carelessly discards the food waste from his home and heads out to go on his date. His night consists of a good barbecue and dancing at a club with the hot young girl. He finally gets to kiss the girl, when a couple of high school students interrupt their intimate moment. Seok-woo experiences strange physical changes as he is somehow able to beat them to a pulp with a surge of strength. Soon zombies flood the streets of Seoul, as the mass media frantically tries to uncover the identity of a mysterious virus that brings the city to ruins. STORY 2: THE HEAVENLY CREATURE In a future where robots have replaced human labour. At the Temple of the Heavens, the robot RU-4 reaches enlightenment on its own. The robot's manufacturer, UR International, believes this phenomenon to be a threat to mankind and decides to terminate the robot. But the other monks call this robot by the name of In-myung and revere him, standing against the corporation's decision. Just as the UR guns are pointed to In-myung, a UR engineer named Do-won goes against their orders and stands before In-myung to protect him. STORY 3: HAPPY BIRTHDAY Min-seo is a young grade school student who accidentally breaks her billiards-obsessed father's favourite pool ball. She logs into a mysterious website and puts in an order for a new pool ball. But two years later, live television reports talk of an unidentified meteor heading toward Earth and Min-seo's family flees to an underground bomb shelter built by her nerdy uncle. After seven years pass, a bright light lures the brave Min-seo out of the shelter to the world outside to witness a changed world.
Two Directors. Three visions of the future. One mindblowing story.
