Oh Dae-Su, an obnoxious drunk abducted on a rainy night in 1988, wakes up in a strange, windowless hotel room. Kept under lock and key for an unknown reason, Oh Dae-Su's invisible captors keep him fed and systematically sedated to avert suicide, providing only a colour television to keep him company. 

After fifteen long years in captivity, perplexed Oh Dae-Su finds himself released. Now, his pitiless abductors encourage Oh Dae-Su to track down the ones behind the mysterious kidnapping and finally get his brutal, longed-for revenge on the unknown tormentor. However, who would hate Oh Dae-Su so much that he would deny him a quick and clean death?

Could this strange power have anything to do with the aliens living on the roof of Margaret's apartment? 

Having never experienced an orgasm, Margaret uses the orgasms of those who see her only as a sex object against them in this visually inventive indie darling was made completely outside the standard systems of filmmaking by Russian director Slava Tsukerman and is a beloved midnight movie to this day.
