Synopsis
Paju is about the messy, moral ambiguity of modern life and the resulting estrangement one may feel with loved ones. Eun-mo returns to Paju after a long absence. Her apartment is about to be demolished, its residents forcibly evicted. Amidst this chaos, she recognizes the anti-eviction leader, with whom she shared a tortured history, but whose past remains a mystery. As Eun-mo now digs deeper, we discover, through flashbacks, that he was a teacher who married her sister, that she blames him for her death and that, nonetheless, she loved him intensely. As his former life as an activist unravels, the city reveals itself perpetually torn between embracing and resisting change, where the shadow of past wrongs hangs over all.
