Film Synopsis

In the midst of the Covid pandemic, Jin, a Korean British woman in her late 20s, flees to the tranquil woods of Pennsylvania in search of solace. Isolated and yearning for connection, she begins an unconventional companionship with the forest. Placing name tags on trees, she befriends them, finding comfort in their silent presence.
As days blend into each other, Jin’s routine becomes a lifeline, shielding her from the relentless chaos outside. Yet, beneath the surface, her thoughts take a darker turn. The isolation that initially offered refuge now transforms into a haunting abyss, breeding desperation within her fragile psyche.
