7-minute work sample cut by director during development stage. Footage was shot in North Korea, South Korea, and the United States.

"60 years after Kyungsun ('Gyung-Sun') Lee escapes North Korea as a Korean War refugee in 1950, her Korean-American granddaughter, the filmmaker, travels to North Korea to find her long-lost family. With time running short, they embark on parallel personal journeys that grapple with the intimate effects of geopolitical issues of war and colonialism across generation and continent."

Advisors include Gi-Wook Shin of Stanford University, Charles Armstrong of Columbia University, and Sam Pollard (When the Levees Broke, 4 Little Girls).
