Sang-won (HA Jung-woo) loses his wife following a sudden accident, also leaving behind their young daughter I-na(HEO Yul), following which their father-daughter bond becomes strained. In order to mend their ties, Sang-won moves them to a new home. He tries to draw closer to his daughter, to little avail, until she informs him that she has a new friend. Although his daughter now appears to be happy, Sang-won grows concerned when he begins to notice strange sounds coming from her closet. Soon after, Sang-won begins to have strange dreams and then I-na disappears. While he searches for her, a strange man named Kyung-hoon (KIM Nam-gil) appears before him, who claims to know where she is, as he points to her closet.
Hot on the heels on his hit ASHFALL (2019), HA Jung-woo returns to theaters in his first ever horror film, The Closet. The film pairs him up with KIM Nam-gil for the first time, who flirted with the horror genre last year in the comedy horror THE ODD FAMILY : ZOMBIE ON SALE (2019), and also headlined the hit TV series The Fiery Priest. The film marks the feature directorial debut of KIM Kwang-bin, who has earned awards and global festival invitations for his inventive shorts such as Modern Family (2011) and How to Pick a Lock (2016).
