On a dark, stormy night, a teenage girl (ROH Jeong-eui) disappears on an island, leaving a last will and a pair of shoes on the edge of a cliff behind. Detective Kim Hyun-soo (KIM Hye-soo) is returning to work following an extended hiatus but before she officially starts back, she is assigned by her superior to investigate the mysterious disappearance. As it turns out, the girl was also a material witness in an important case. Detective Kim meets the detectives that had been in charge of protecting her, as well as the local island resident (LEE Jung-eun) who was the last person to see the girl. As she approaches the truth, Detective Kim begins to commiserate with the girl’s troubles.
New mystery-thriller THE DAY I DIED : UNCLOSED CASE, a Warner Bros. Korea production, has been drumming up attention not only as a vehicle for top star KIM Hye-soo, known for the The Thieves (2012), Coin Locker Girl (2015) and Default (2018), but also as a rare project both directed by a woman, in the form of debut filmmaker PARK Ji-wan, and featuring a largely female cast, which also includes PARASITE (2019) star LEE Jung-eun, young actress ROH Jeong-eui (A Haunting Hitchhike, 2019), character actress KIM Sun-young (Three Sisters) and Hide and Seek (2013) actress MOON Jung-hee.
