In a peaceful middle-class apartment, part-time lecturer Yoon-ju is becoming hyper-sensitive to a dog’s barking coming from somewhere nearby. In an attempt to find the source, he puts his ear to the floor or listens carefully to the sounds from ceiling. Then one day, returning from his recycling ritual, he discovers a puppy standing in front of his neighbour’s door. Convinced that it is the culprit that has been bothering him, he dognaps the puppy and imprisons it in the basement. Meanwhile, the apartment custodian Hyun-nam searches for the puppy with its young owner. Satisfied of being rid of the dog, Yoon-ju returns to his apartment only to hear the barking again. He rushes to the basement, but the puppy is nowhere to be found…
