OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Starring Kim Myung-min of the 2012 summer hit Deranged and Byun Yo-han of the fantasy drama Will You Be There? alongside Kim Yun-seok, it is the directorial debut of Cho Sun-ho, formerly an assistant director on 2013’s Killer Toon.

Plot:

Returning from a long trip abroad, Jun-young, a skilled doctor, comes across a car accident scene on the way to meet his daughter. It turns out that the dead hit by a taxi is none other than his beloved daughter, Eun-jung. Then suddenly, everything repeats like a déjà vu: Eun-jung getting hit by a taxi and Min-chul, the paramedic, checking on other victims including his own wife inside the taxi. The disastrous hours repeat yet again: the accident scene, Eun-jung, Min-chul’s desperate face, and so on. Lost in repetition, Jun-young notices that he is not the only one trying to save a loved one in the endless time loop. Now, Jun-young and Min-chul decide to work together to redesign the gruesome future.
