Synopsis

There is a worker who has devoted his life to construct buildings. He believed that everything would be OK if I work hard. His labor for a lifetime, and his mind of one time.

Review

A man working at a construction site experiences joy, anger, sorrow, and happiness as if going through an entire lifetime. Proud that his labor contributes to the welfare of society, he connects labor with life. We're remined of the values advocated by the Saemaul Movement. The journey made by the director to visit places from his father's past overlaps with the history of Korea’s urban development and industrial growth. His father became a tool for the country’s economic development. Yet, being a typical parent of the time he sacrificed everything for his family and like other laborers, was never guaranteed a quality of life. The director now hopes to restore the life of his father who confuses his private life with his role as a pillar of industry. To this end, he explores not just superficial memories but also regrets buried deep inside the heart. The film portrays the subtle emotional changes that the director goes through along the way. This painful story retains warmth thanks to the director’s thoughtful gaze towards his family. [Suan SEOL]
