Convenience store clerk/film student Mu-Young is a university senior who has yet to make a film. He angers a visiting indie filmmaker who ironically picks Mu-Young to receive his donation money given to the film department. Mu-Young finally gets a chance to make his first movie, a zombie melodrama. But he soon finds out that his inexperience, unrealistic demands and impatience causes everyone around him to go crazy. His dream project turns into a nightmare. Everything that can go wrong, does. He loses his leading lady and his best friend producer abandons him. But his zombie extras pitch in as crew and he manages to finish his opus ‘Let Me Out’. Barely surviving his disastrous shoot, he comes to realize making a movie is like love, you can’t do it alone. A movie for people who love movie making, making love and zombies.

While spinning this coming-of-age story about a filmmaker wannabe, LET ME OUT pays homage to DAY FOR NIGHT, LIVING IN OBLIVION and Korean cinema. LET ME OUT pokes fun at director Ik June Yang who won the 2009 Rotterdam Festival’s Tiger Award for BREATHLESS and cast director Myungse Lee as himself (M, DUELIST, NOWHERE TO HIDE). LET ME OUT is an ultimate tribute to guerrilla, indie, amateur, low-budget cineastes struggling to create.
