2007, 112 minutes Director: Im Sang-soo
Cast: Yum Jung-ah and Ji Jin-hee

Lim Sang-soo cuts a rich tale of personal pathos from the fabric of Korea’s recent history with the story of Hyun-woo, re-entering society after 17 years in prison for activities as a political dissident. Yoon-hee, his lover and partner in the struggle, is dead. Visiting their old hiding places and re-reading her letters, however, Hyun-woo realizes that he’s not as lost as he thought he was.
