When a young fisherman named Hoon accidentally catches a siren, he tries to view her as a normal trophy. However, it quickly turns out that the sea creature is only seemingly harmless on land. The siren – captured in a golden cage – follows the tradition and begins to try to seduce the young man. In his diploma project, JiHyeon Kim utilizes anime-like aesthetics, setting it in a typically rural Asian environment. He does not forget about a pinch of fantasy.
