Director: Lee Jae-gyu
Lifelong friends and married couple Seok-ho and Ye-jin, invite their close friends over for a housewarming dinner. They end up playing a game which requires everybody to leave their cellphones out on the table, and all new incoming messages and calls to be shared with the group. Initially starting off lightly, the game gets more and more uncomfortable as hidden truths start to surface, making them start to feel more like strangers. The film was presented at the 2019’s Far East Film Festival.
