    • Synopsis
    • Chun-ji is a composed middle school girl who is always prepared for tomorrow. Her apathetic sister Man-ji does everything halfheartedly. One afternoon, Chun-ji, an avid knitter, hangs herself with her own red yarn. Because of Chun-ji’s unexpected suicide, her mother Hyun-suk and Man-ji move to an apartment complex slated for redevelopment. Man-ji searches for answers to Chun-ji’s death. Without a note to guide her, Man-ji meets up with Chun-ji’s best friend, Hwa-yeon, who tells her how lonely Chun-ji felt at school. But when Man-ji discovers the truth—that they weren’t friends and in fact Hwa-yeon was her sister’s harasser—she is infuriated. Each feeling resentment toward Hwa-yeon, Hyun-suk and Man-ji each insinuate themselves into Hwa-yeon’s life in order to explain Chun-ji’s death.
