There is a moment after sunset when it is so dark, one cannot tell whether the animal in front of one's eyes is a dog or a wolf. In French, this moment is called the "time between dog and wolf" (Entre chien et loup). It is an anxious time when the distinction between reality and illusion becomes vague, a time that arouses questions about life. A filmmaker returns to his hometown after a twenty-five year absence. There he meets a woman who has been looking for her lost sibling for a long time. As they explore the town together, the filmmaker faces his losses and comes to understand what he was in the process of losing in the future.
At sunset, everything is strange and frightening, says Yonghow, Kim?s mysterious travel companion. Her sister disappeared at this time of day. The film is immersed in an atmosphere of silence, mystery and slowness. Kim is unable to finish the editing of his film. He struggles with financial problems. His search for his father leads him to both sides of the border between the two Koreas, the snowy scenery blurring the lines. To get away from his own life, he gets involved in Yonghow?s. At the magical hour between day and night, Kim tries to forget himself in someone else?s life, drowns himself in alcohol and tries to stop himself going round in circles.
