Based on the memory of a childhood experience, "The Renter" follows the story of a young boy who is cared for by an elderly woman during the day. Her house belongs to an aging, impoverished land, laid amongst fields of weeds and rotting pears. To earn extra money, she rents a room downstairs to a man who works in the factory nearby. Insensitive to the presence of the boy, the man is a lone, solitary creature, who goes about his business in unsettling ways. Despite the woman's care, increasingly, the boy feels isolated and exposed to the seemingly harsh and disturbing world around him. Through a struggle he cannot fully understand, he learns that caring can be shown in ways that confuse him.
