Unlock is set in a future where music has ceased to exist and sound is used as a woman. A couple set about to access an iPhone, now an old relic, yet still holds music inside which holds sentimental value. Sometime in the future where sound becomes a weapon and music has vanished, an off-the-wall young girl named Jin-hee uses a broken earphone as a mirror. One day, her arm gets hurt by a baseball thrown by a boy named Ji-hoo. Ji-hoo, who is busy trying to fix Jin-hee’s arm, finally tries to sell the earphone. But Jin-hee won’t let him sell it since it is the only link to the faint memories of her childhood. The encounter between Jin-hee, who desperately wants to listen to music, and Ji-hoo, who doesn’t know anything about music, brings light to an off-the-wall love story.
