Deliveryman Jongsu is out on a job when he runs into Haemi, a girl who once lived in his neighborhood.
She asks if he’d mind looking after her cat while she’s away on a trip to Africa.
On her return she introduces to Jongsu an enigmatic young man named Ben, who she met during her trip.
And one day Ben tells Jongsu about his most unusual hobby…
“Intelligence and subtle storytelling smarts are in evidence throughout Burning, which gratifyingly pays off the viewer’s investment of time. The performances of the three principals are first-rate… The fine craftsmanship is evident in every respect, from Hong Kyung-pyo’s outstanding cinematography to Mowg’s distinctive score.”, Hollywood Reporter, Todd McCarthy
