Synopsis

The film connects three discrete images; high-tech city Seoul’s promotion video, a woman without a family and a Kimpo-Seoul highway still in construction. Seoul welcomes foreign tourists. Everyone smiles in the video. On the contrary, JEON Jae-suk has a soulless look. Her family was the victims of the brutal crackdown on evictees in Yong-san redevelopment district. Kimpo highway has no face. But it will have either pleasing vibe or bleak feel. One who wants to move must take a path. The way or the path is the mean and direction of his goal. The Secret Principle of Things tells us to ask a question before we take a path, whether it is right or wrong. Asking the question after having walked on the path might be too late. Was the redevelopment a right way? For whom? (LEE Yong-cheol)
