This is a performance where Hamlet is transported to a slaughterhouse in modern day South Korea. While it appears to be an ordinary slaughterhouse from the outside, it is in fact a perfectly controlled place, where powerful men butcher and execute their opponents. One day, the boss named Lee Sang-cheol is killed, and his son Lee Hae-in is trying to revenge his father's death. Painting a picture of extreme violence and wicked plans carried out by beast-like men, and one boy seeking an escape.
