Plot Outline:

A trilogy of films from acclaimed Korean directors Jee-woon Kim and Pil-Sung Yim - in the first story, a man's effort to recycle his garbage leads to a zombie epidemic; in the second story a robot gains enlightenment but the company who created him considers him a threat to all mankind; in the final segment a broken billiard ball coupled with a frantic online order leads directly to the end of the world. Humor, fear, religion, mortality, technology - and more, combine to form an epic sci-fi ensemble. -- Chris Kavan

Jee-Woon Kim's middle segment takes a bit more serious tone and serves as an anchor for the trilogy - and also proves the most thought-provoking.

As we open, we find a young man left behind as his parents and sister go on vacation (as he's in the militar...
