The disconnections of urban lives. Yun-ju is a part-time college lecturer: his wife is pregnant – and he wonders if he should bribe the dean to secure him a professorship. He is also very annoyed by the sound of nearby a yapping dog, that disturbs him in the large block of flats where he lives. Hyeon-nam is equally disengaged: she´s a book-keeper at the same block of flats, animated only when she learns of a lost dog. Over the course of a few weeks, three dogs in the building go missing – Yun-ju and Hyeon-nam have a connection to each. So might a janitor. Is it a man-eat-dog world ? And is there a cure for this numbing depression ?
