Synopsis

It all begins as if we were dealing with a spy story. A man works crossing the border between the two Koreas, taking anything he’s asked to transport with him. Everything starts to have the feel of a melodrama until one of his assignments is to take a woman, the girlfriend of a high-ranking North Korean official. Halfway between Seoul and Piongyan, the film also takes place between the persecution of North Korean spies and the drama that is characteristic of those who are running away. A movie from the director of Beautiful with a screenplay by one of the Korean film greats: Kim Ki-duk
