The film follows the lives of two “unconverted” North Korean political prisoners who were held in South Korean detention camps for 30 years, yet never renounced their Communist beliefs. (At the end of the 1990s, as relations between North and South Korea improved, even the most hardened “unconverted” cases were released.) Upon release, they moved to a small neighborhood where the filmmaker befriended them and filmed their lives for a decade. The film asks the questions “How did these men survive the dehumanizing conversion process of systematic torture for decades?” and “What awaited them in the outside world?” This documentary tries to instill hope for the peace and coexistence that can overcome ideological differences. (Digital presentation. Korean language with English subtitles.)
