To trumpeter Hyeon-Woo, life seems to remain forever locked in winter. In desperation, Hyeon-Woo signs up for a position teaching a children's wind ensemble at a small junior high school in a distant Dogye village. Worn-out instruments, tarnished trophies and frayed certificates testify to the poor conditions of this ragtag group. This leads Hyeon-Woo, together with his students, to take on a seemingly impossible challenge
SPRINGTIME is the revitalizing, moving tale of a trumpeter whose wounded soul gains a newfound hope after he starts teaching a wind ensemble in a children's school in a mountainous coalmining village. Beginning in the rains of autumn and continuing to the first breezes of spring, this movie illustrates how a heart is gradually healed as a part of the ongoing changes of life - as part of life, love and the turning seasons.
