    • Synopsis
    • MO Geum-san is a barber living in the rural area, who once aspired to be an actor. He starts to have doubts about his humdrum life after the village health center advises him to be examined at a larger hospital. He comes up with a plan to give a gift to his beloved ones in the coming Christmas. The plan is to invite everyone to the local culture center and to screen his self-made comedy movie based on his own tragic life. For this, he brings over his son Stephan, an aspiring film director, and his long-standing lover Ye-won from Seoul. They wander around shooting a silent film with an 8mm camera parodying Charlie Chaplin’s silent movies. Meanwhile, as he follows his father, Stephan is seized with an ominous premonition and ends up facing the worst truth he couldn’t ever imagine.
