Synopsis

A black hole mysteriously appears in the middle of a house. A man cautiously approaches and reaches into the hole. He pulls out a severed arm tightly holding a phone. Suddenly, the phone rings, and an unknown caller tells him ominously that his military officer father was a national disgrace and that he will be remembered as his bastard son. The call abruptly ends, and the phone lights up.

Accompanied by images of violent protests, a news announcement reveals how a high-ranking military soldier had taken the personal information of conscripts and sold them to a call centre gang.

The man returns to find the mysterious black hole again in the middle of the house. Bending down, he stares into it, seeing images of the masses of the past and present and a battle that repeats itself endlessly.
