Plot Summary

Strange things are afoot in a seemingly ordinary school. Puddles of water appear, a mysterious woman stalks the corridors and a teacher is found hanged from a tree. A new teacher bullies his pupils so badly that one of them kills himself and the answerphone of the hanged teacher keeps replaying a cryptic message: “Jin-Joo is here. She has been coming to school.”
