[ Story ]

An installment in a series in which four internationally-renowned directors use dramatic and documentary-style approaches in adapting supernaturally-themed works by famous figures from Japanese literary history. Director LEE Sang-il, winner of Japan Academy Award for Best Director for {HULA GIRLS}, loosely adapts a short story from Akutagawa Ryunosuke's "Konjaku Monogatari-shu". In the Heian era (between the 8th and 12th century), Zenchi (Matsushige Yutaka), a monk with an ugly, gigantic nose, tries to save a child from drowning in a river. The cloth concealing his proboscis slips, and the child sees it.
