A single mother writes unanswered letters to an American soldier, the absent father of her child. Her son, the mixed-race Chang-Guk, is tainted by the violence and revulsion he faces every day. His bitter experiences give him the only language he knows to express his love for his mother. A wounded girl, a shy boy and a lonely young American soldier are intertwined in relationships of love and pain, and for their parents the legacy of the Korean War is still a daily fact of life. They all live under the shadow of the U.S. military forces stationed in South Korea and none of them can escape the inevitable tragedy of their condition. The film is a story of violent innocence and brutal love, committed by good people mired in the poisonous legacy of war.
