[ Story ]

The first narrative feature from director Yang Yonghi, who gained international acclaim for her documentary films DEAR PYONGYANG and Sona, the Other Myself. Winner of the International Confederation of Art House Cinemas (C.I.C.A.E.) Prize in the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival's Forum Section.
Sung-ho (Iura Arata), who emigrated to North Korea as part of a repatriation program for Koreans in Japan in the 1970s, visits Japan for the first time in twenty-five years to receive treatment for an illness. His younger sister Rie (Ando Sakura) and the rest of his family shed tears of joy at their reunion. However, in the middle of his planned three-month stay, Sung-ho is suddenly ordered to return to North Korea.
