Program Abstract: Loosely based on the Korean black comedy, Quiet Family, this extraordinary genre- blending remake tells the story of a modern dysfunctional family and their shared dream of opening an inn in the country. Despite all their best efforts, the inn has the unfortunate habit of attracting guests who all turn up dead in the morning. The Katajuris do their upmost to make a success of the place despite the growing number of guests now planted in the grove behind the house.
