Director
José Luis García

In 1989, José Luis García participated in the World Youth and Students Festival taking place in Pyongyang, North Korea. A political event sponsored by the USSR, just three weeks after the massacre at Tiananmen Square and four months before the fall of the Berlin Wall. He meets Lim Sukyung, a young activist, who arrived clandestinely from Seoul representing the students of South Korea, demanding the peaceful reunification of her nation. Twenty years later, the collapse of youthful illusions guides the quest of the filmmaker, fascinated by the memory of the ‘Flower of Reunification’. Always beset by the onslaught of a society still at war, Lim ends up revealing the unexpected and profound link that bonds her to a complete stranger who has arrived from the far ends of the earth.
