Stone Ocean (1) (
It is 5:35 P.M. Standing in a rainstorm, a young woman is seen beside a red car staring at the corpse of a man. She is shown to have a tattoo on her left arm.
In a holding room, various female prisoners are seen in different cells. One particular prisoner, a woman with braided hair, is annoyed at noises that another prisoner was making while banging her head on her bed. This prisoner is revealed to be the woman with the tattoo. The woman, Jolyne, is banging her head out of embarrassment for getting caught masturbating by a guard. As she is taunted by another prisoner, she intimidates her, stating that she's able to tell her crime by examining the joint of her left ring finger. Just before Jolyne and the woman with braided hair are transferred to another prison, she asks if the woman would believe her if she claimed that she was framed for her crime.
Jolyne is informed by her lawyer that she has been arranged to be sent to Green Dolphin Street Jail to receive her punishment for her crime. The lawyer also brought essentials for Jolyne's use. She finds a shiny amulet among them that was from her father, and cuts her finger with a chipped stone stored inside the amulet. Jolyne states that her father had never been there for her, and that it would be useless to contact him. On a photo inside the amulet, a man wearing a cap and white clothing along with a woman is shown. She throws the amulet away and it drops into a drain. Her full name is revealed by her lawyer to be Jolyne Cujoh.
On the 6th of November in the year 2011, Jolyne is seen talking to the woman with braided hair, on a vehicle heading to Green Dolphin Street Jail. She reveals her name to be Ermes Costello, and informs Jolyne that money is necessary in the prison. Jolyne manages to guess where Ermes is hiding her money, which is in her left breast. After Jolyne gets off the vehicle, she hears a conversation, despite no one speaking nearby. As she is listening to the conversation, she discovers a string coming out of her injured finger. The string leads back to the truck she was on, and the conversation she was hearing is revealed to be Ermes being threatened by the guards. Using the string, she manages to stop the guard from striking Ermes, promptly cutting the guard's ear off and obtaining some money in the process.
