On storytelling, “Seoul Station” has it fleshed out from the trash-cluttered apartment of a near-evicted couple, to the echoes of footsteps in a dead-silent Hospital, and even to the body language of the movie’s characters.

This South Korean movie started with a family familiar with loss, including the recent disappearance of Hee-yeon and Min-ho’s son, Jun-suh. Along with their daughter and Hee-yeon’s mother, Jun-hee and Soon-ja, they moved to Mt. Jang in hopes of starting anew –or at least to distance themselves from the painful memories of their previous home. However, the family’s peace of mind starts crashing down, once a mysterious girl is found and taken-in.
