Synopsis
The film takes us on a journey to Paju, a town on the border between North and South Korea. There we follow the German-Korean filmmaker, whose family once fled from North Korea to the South, as she encounters the inhabitants of Paju. These include: a tour guide, who daily escorts foreign tourists to the border; a North Korean refugee who only recently fled to the South; and a young editor who publishes books on North Korea, although the topic is of little personal interest to him.
In its encounters with these residents, the film renders a perceptive portrait of a country whose division has left a deep imprint in the lives of its inhabitants.
