Human Bio, the biggest pharmaceutical company in Korea conducts illegal experiments on humans. One day, a test goes wrong and resulting in the creation of a zombie. Soon after, in the remote countryside, the oddball Park family makes their acquaintance with the zombie in question, Hyun-woo. Rather than afraid of this strange creature, Park’s family plots to make money out of him, especially after realizing the ’old’ father’s sudden restored virility from a bite of the zombie. Only the youngest daughter Hae-gul takes a liking to Hyun-woo, and nicknames him "Jongbie, the pet." Will Jongbie make a home with his ‘weirder than zombie’ family?
“Director Lee Min-Jae’s action-packed and self-referential debut takes everything to task with uproarious abandon.” – NYAFF 18th edition
