  • Summary:

    Young-goon thinks that she is a cyborg, and is admitted to a mental institution. She refuses to eat food, and for sustenance, she electro-charges herself with a transistor radio. Despite her stay at the mental institution, her condition does not improve. While wearing her grandmother’s dentures, she continues to talk to electric appliances ranging from vending machines to lamps.

    An assortment of odd characters surrounds Young-goon at the mental institution. Sol-mi receives electrotherapy to cure her depression and keeps losing her memory. Dae-pyung is scared of his wife and has turned impotent. Gyu-suk suffers from a severe case of Oedipus Complex. Duk-chun thinks that he is the cause of all bad things and always seeks forgiveness. Eun-young is delusional and has conversations with imaginary people. And Soo-jin is addicted to plastic surgery. Then there is Il-soon. His mother has left him, leaving him deeply wounded, and like others at the mental institution, he has become anti-social. Il-soon believes and demonstrates to others at the hospital that he has the power to steal such intangible personal traits as character, attitude and habits from them. When Young-goon sees Il-soon playing ping-pong wearing a funny mask, she is readily taken with him. Despite the mask, Il-soon has good looks, and Young-goon finds his awkward ways charming. Il-soon, too, takes to Young-goon immediately and finds most beautiful her big, white front teeth. In a group session where patients give each other gifts, Young-goon asks Il-soon to steal her sympathy.

    Eventually Young-goon believes that her battery has run out and faints. More than ever she believes that she is a cyborg and that her body is a mechanical one. With her conditions deteriorating, she puts herself through an electrotherapy treatment and believes that she is fully charged. Then in her mind’s world, she goes on a rampage gunning down the white-clad medical staff. She fires bullets from her finger tips, and her mouth spits out empty shells.

    Il-soon notices that Young-goon is becoming weaker physically. His feelings for her grow, and he is resolved to make her eat so that she might regain her health. He enlists the help of all the patients at the mental institution to help in his efforts. They all come together in the hope that Young-goon would eat and be alright. Il-soon devises an ingenious plan to get her to eat, and all are touched by his efforts. Il-soon gains Young-goon’s trust, and they help each other in taking important steps toward reconciling with their past.
