Displaced people from the Philippines and Mokdong gather to remember where they used to live, and create a place to live again. Their memory becomes the body and the body becomes the house. While making a movie there, they realize that someone is there.


In 1986, people living in shacks were displaced, due to the construction of large-scale apartment complexes in Mok-dong. Later, when I met Filipino migrant workers, while working in Mok-dong, it was as if the people who lost their homes and left, had come back. Both the people and the houses are becoming invisible. For them, a house is place, nostalgic and horrifying.
