One day, a suicide case occurs in an apartment building. By chance, Sejin (Ko So-Young) saw the clock that showed 9:56. Another suicide case occurs, just like the last time, at 9:56 a.m., the apartment lights flickered and then went off.
Se-jin tells this to Yang-shik, but he only laughs. Se-jin looks into Yoo-yeon’s house (Jang Hee-Jin) through binoculars and witnesses an unusual scene. A situation that can be described as abuse occurs, such as a neighbor slapped Yoo Yeon in the face relentlessly.
It is only after a brutal murder has occurred that Yang-sik tries to believe Se-jin’s words. Police note that the same apartment keys were found on the bodies of both the suicide and the murderer.
In a space called an apartment, which has become the most common type of house for modern people, criticism of the reality of not knowing the faces of neighbors even when facing the gates overlaps with the bloody image of the most familiar person becoming the most fearful.
