Synopsis

North of the Dooman River, which serves as border between Manchuria and North Korea, live a community of Korean-Chinese. Like most places in rural China, only the old and young remain, with adults earning money as migrant workers in bigger cities. In one such village lives a boy named Chang-ho, who at the beginning befriends a North Korean stowaway. But refugees from the totalitarian state begin to arrive in greater numbers. Soon, sentiments turn against the defectors and Chang-ho’s allegiance to his friend is tested.
