    • Synopsis
    • In 1991, After a freshman at MyungJi University was killed by police forces, 2,400 street rallies followed, resulting in the death of 10 young people (including 8 self-immolations) throughout South Korea in just one month.
      Embattled military regime prosecuted a man, named Cahng Ki-Hoon, for aiding and abetting his colleague's suicide. Prosecutors argued that he had written a testament on one of his colleague's behalf. This illogical argument worked. Finally Cahng had to be behind the bars for three years.
      24 years later, he could be free of charges after a final retrial. But at that moment, no one can find him. He has actually been battling liver cancer for three years. A few months later, he gave a little guitar concert of his own in front of his folks. This film starts with that sound of his guitar.
