Synopsis
In 1952, in the midst of the Korean War, North Korea sent selected students to socialist sister countries with the intention that they should be trained there and then at some point return with their newly accrued knowledge in order to rebuild their ruined homeland. The GDR received a large number of these Korean students.
In addition to the German language, these polite young men soon mastered all the local dance moves. It was during this time that they were to have such fateful encounters with young German women: their personal love and life stories began against the backdrop of major world history.
At the beginning of the 1960s the young North Koreans had to return home, some leaving their newly formed families forever.
This film tells the story of some of these people who have not seen one another for decades, and who now long to be reunited, or at least learn more about the life of their young love or unknown parent in the Far East.
