Directed by: In Hak Jang
Produced and written by: Joon Bai

The theme of forced separation amongst loved ones is one of the most painful human experiences. The film shows people's desires to be united. Korea is the only country today, which is still divided by war. War has caused millions of people to be forcefully separated and left them suffering. This film was a way to address those issues. The story is based on true events and reflects the millions of people and casualties of the war today. It gives a voice to the survivors of the ongoing conflict, who have been cut off from the rest of the world for the last 60 years. During the making of the film, we observed the insufficient conditions and lack of infrastructure of the country of North Korea. Their desire to make a film that expresses their motivations has brought everyone together to make a film of this nature. Unlike all other films produced under strict orders and for propaganda purposes by the government, this film gives a voice to the citizens of North Korea with hopes to bring peace and reunification one day. 


During the Korean War, a young nurse in the small town of Chunamri, North Korea, saves a wounded South Korean soldier who has been left behind during battle. Brought together by the unfortunate circumstance of war, theirs is a fateful meeting.

His identity is unknown to her until he must return to South Korea. With the promise to return, the nurse waits a lifetime for him.

Separated by war and countries between them, the young man tries everything to get back to the North but diplomatic relations between countries make it impossible for their reunion. As the years go by and their youth slips away from them, he finally gets an unexpected opportunity to fulfill his wish and return to her. But reunions are not easy and after years apart, they are met with more tragedy.
