Synopsis
This wildly popular ’70s film depicts Koreans struggling to adapt to new realities as post-war industrialization delegitimizes their old understandings of the past. An incident lands Vietnam veteran Chang-su in jail. He meets Yeong-ja, a long-lost love from before the war. Once a demure country girl, she has become a brassy, disabled sex worker in order to make ends meet. Chang-su wants to save Yeong-ja. But does she want to be saved? And is Chang-su still the right person for her?
