The play is a patchwork of twenty short scenes revolving around an unuttered question – what are human relationships made of?
A woman wants divorce because there was never any love between her and her husband. On her wedding day, a bride discovers her fiance had an affair with each of her four sisters. A mother is stunned when she learns her husband is happy with their son joining the army and risking his life at war. Two best friends get into a savage fight because one of them recalls their first encounter. A prostitute bargains down her services to hook a client.
What are those bonds that lead us to love, hate, help, betray, care, flee, fight, abuse, or lie? Each scene explores situations where a relationship is challenged, drawing us into a maze where appeased relations between humans seem as primal, desirable and quixotic as the reunification of the two Koreas.
