Geuk-chul's excitement turns to disappointment when he arrives at Cannes on his first ever trip and heads to Italy. He walks nearly 250 kilometers in Italy, but gives up in the end. He meets Syrian refugees in Istanbul, Turkey and that gets him interested the Middle East area.
He travels to Israel, but takes shelter when the airport is attacked by HAMAS. Geuk-chul starts filming the dispute between Israel and Palestine. He moves to the West Bank of Palestine and meets George, who helps him film the Palestinian suffering at the hands of the Israelis, the illegal Israeli settlements with a big wall in between them and a city of Palestine.
He returns to Jerusalem and meets an Israeli soldier who took part in the war, and listens to a victim of the Israel – Palestine war on the 'Peace Bus'. He hears the voices of the Israeli Minority against Jewish ruling forces in the city of Sderot, those Palestinians who were hurt or lost a family member in the war of Gaza and Israeli families who lost their loved ones to their opponents.
When the war ceases for a while he goes to the Venice International Film Festival and decides to take the train to Siberia before he goes home. He ends his journey by filming the Chun-ji at Baekdu Mountain on his second try.
