Synopsis (trailer)

A young Buddhist apprentice is mentored by an aging monk at a secluded monastery in the Korean wilderness. As a teenager, the apprentice encounters a girl who arrives at the monastery seeking assistance with her health. Over the course of a few days, the boy is tempted away from his spiritual existence into a sexual relationship. He leaves the monastery to follow the girl into a modern way of life he has never known and is unprepared for.


春 – 一個童僧拿著石頭,壓著河邊的一條魚的尾部,又用同樣的方法對待一隻青蛙和一條蛇。結果老僧也用同樣的方式懲罰童僧,讓他身上綁著一塊石頭,直到他尋回並釋放被他虐待的小動物們,否則他所犯下的罪孽將綑綁著他一世。

夏 – 當年的童僧已長大,感到深居簡出的日子頗為苦悶。突然間,一名少女病癒後來到寺廟療養。少僧開始忍受不住異性相吸所帶來的誘惑和溫暖。

秋 – 一個三十歲的青年悲傷失意地逃到寺廟之中,原來他正是多年前離開的少僧,在老僧的照顧之下,他才娓娓道出他回到寺廟的原因:他因目睹深愛的女人投向別人的懷抱,憤而失手殺人。當老僧正要讓青年刻經文以洗淨心靈之時,兩名刑警出現在寺廟的另一頭。

冬 – 經過牢獄洗禮的中年男子,再度回到此地卻已人事全非。他整理著殘破的寺廟時,一名蒙面婦女突然探訪寺廟,並留下了一個男嬰。像是輪迴註定般,男子與小男嬰在寺廟裡開始了他們的新生活,就如同當初老僧扶養自己一樣。
