Kim Ki-duk makes an emotional return to cinema in this deeply critical, self-deprecating, personal film. Living in a tent (which is actually inside a shack) upon the hillside of a snowy village, the highly acclaimed director appears to do little more than cook, feed his cat, and repair his espresso maker. And talk. Discussing bits and pieces of his career—as well as a film script he has yet to realize—»Arirang.«

When Ki-duk begins commenting on his secluded lifestyle he bursts with raw emotion in an intimate display of self-reflection. Stories like the one of his nearly fatal accident during the shooting of his latest film »Dream«, surface. He cries, and he wails. He sings of loneliness, death, and betrayal. Ki-duk weeps upon seeing a computer image of himself crying and again breaks down while watching scenes from »Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… Spring«. This is a clever, but raw, piece about and by Kim Ki-duk.
