Synopsis
Ordinary woman at middle 20’s, Jae-Young was sentenced to die by an angel and goes to heaven 5 days later. Going to heaven means nothing to her because she thought there's no reason and humanity in the heaven. With no choice, she accepts her own death and is going to say good-bye to her mother and friends.
In the meantime, she is also afraid of emptiness in the heaven and a desire for life starts torturing her again.
Director's Note
Tragic irony from a life of a young ordinary person who sees his death, this is the main structure of the sequence in "The Hell 1 and 2".
In this movie, the young people lost their control and chose the way of irrationality. After all, they feel the life itself is the hell because they lost the way-out.
I wanted to describe imperfection of human life against their fate.
