After a fall, Soo-jin (Seo Yea-ji) wakes up in hospital with a serious head injury that has left her with no memory of who she is or how she came to be there. As she goes back home with her solicitous husband Ji-hoon (Kim Kang-woo) – whom she also does not remember – to their high-rise apartment, her inability to recall the past is irrationally offset by apparent clairvoyant powers that enable her to see what is about to happen. All of which will lead her gradually to look at her present situation and relations with different, suspicious eyes.

Like a smarter riff on Rowan Joffe’s Before I Go To Sleep (2014), Seo You-min’s amnesia thriller uses deftly handled, superbly unpredictable twists to paint a portrait of a woman lost, traumatised and gas-lit, but on the wild, rocky road to recovery.
