Synopsis:
The movie tells the hauntingly tragic story of a forbidden love affair between a merchant's wife, Osan, and her husband's employee, Mohei, in an era when the punishment for adultery was crucifixion. When a series of innocent events lead to the false accusation of an affair between Osan and Mohei, the accused pair are forced to flee an almost certain death sentence. On the run, the outlaw couple grow closer together, drawn inexorably towards the romantic crime of which they are accused.
