It's the end of 90s. A kid witnesses the tragic death of her pregnant mother while filming her with a hand-cam. Many years later, he finds an old cassette left on his door. While he goes on a quest to find a way to listen to it, he is drawn into a dark abyss of memories and is once again haunted by a ghastly figure arising from the past.

Director Statement

This film is cursed. Just like the ominous black ink spoilt in Dekalog One, the film has spoilt a darkness beyond the limits of its intended form. This idea of making a film based on one of my childhood memories somehow revived an old family curse. Many years later, the black ink was once more spoilt.
