Following Punch, director Lee Han adapts another Kim Ryeo Ryeong novel for the silver screen, this time tackling the difficult topics of suicide and school bullying. Set in the aftermath of a teenage girl’s sudden suicide, the critically acclaimed Thread of Lies reveals through flashbacks the experiences and incidents that built up to her death. Exploring the sensitive dynamics of middle school classrooms and adolescent friendships, the film presents a realistic, nuanced study on bullying that avoids casting blanket judgment but rather addresses the cruel and complex relationship between the victims and perpetrators of bullying. Appearing in her first film in over 20 years, Kim Hee Ae (Secret Love Affair) plays the mother struggling to keep things together after unspeakable loss. Sung Dong Il and Punch‘s Yoo Ah In also appear in supporting roles. The greatest spotlight, however, goes to the superb young female cast of Ko Ah Sung (Snowpiercer) and top teen actresses Kim Yoo Jung (Commitment) and Kim Hyang Gi (A Werewolf Boy).
14-year-old schoolgirl Cheon Ji (Kim Hyang Gi) takes her own life one day without leaving a suicide note. Her widowed mother (Kim Hee Ae) and older sister Man Ji (Ko Ah Sung) are left reeling from the grief and shock. They never saw the warning signs. Seeking answers, Man Ji begins to approach Cheon Ji’s classmates and gradually learns about her sister’s peer circle and the class queen bee, Hwa Yeon (Kim Yoo Jung), who befriended then bullied her.
