Ja Yeong is a flutist. When her father has a child out of wedlock, her mother regards sex as a sin out of anger towards him. Ja Yeong grows up under her mother's exceedingly oppressive notions. Then by chance, Ja Yeong's sexual urges are expressed in an abnormal fashion. Ja Yeong's boyfriend Jo bin starts to detest her but he slowly learns of her situation and begins to understand her. On the other hand, Ja Yeong suffers much by jealousy of her half-sister Bo Yeong and Chun Hyung Seok who takes out his revenge on her.

This film shows an interesting perspective of the 1980s and the conflict between western influence and Korean traditions. A slightly disturbing film due to the blame being placed upon the women for her choices and the consequences. Westerners are definitely shown as the evil in this film, however you have to take in perspective of when this film was made and the influences at the time. It took me a while to fully grasp who was who and their role in the story, however once I had my head wrapped round it, there were many different layers and viewpoints. Amazing acting and an interesting watch.
