SYNOPSIS

Uncontrollable infatuation leads to darkness over oneself. “Sun” is a 19-year-old boy who always thinks about himself and doesn’t care what other people think. He lives life recklessly until his father forces him to get ordained. Faithless and unaccepting of his own mistakes, Sun still lives his life the old way even though he is now wearing the monk’s yellow robes. That includes having an affair with “Fai” a local girl who longs for love. Both of them don’t think they are doing anything wrong. The sinful behavior eventually leads Sun to be involved with horrific secrets hidden inside the temple, including the secret of the affair between a monk and a woman, and the confrontation with a hungry demon that follows him to ask for merit and life. All the dark Everything seems to be con- nected to one another, bound by the same thing -- karma. Finally, the mistakes he is running away from starts catching up to him. The only way to end itisto pay for the sins he has committed.
