Erinyes

Only a few months away from adulthood, Ji-eun is imprisoned for murder in a juvenile detention center. Su-jin, a friendly counselor, approaches Ji-eun, who has vowed never again to use violence. Ji-eun is wary of Su-jin at first, but her heart opens little by little. Ji-eun comes to rely on Su-jin and feels a special affection for her. Su-jin suggests that Ji-eun come to a youth center she runs, after being released from prison. Ji-eun enters Su-jin′s center, feeling that Su-jin′s presence is growing.
However, Ji-eun finds herself in the ironic situation of having to participate in a violent mission under the influence of Su-jin′s gaslighting, even though she has vowed never to do anything bad again.
