    • Synopsis
    • In 1948, as the government issued the communists’ eviction to the Jeju Island, the military invaded a calm and peaceful village. Running away from the army, townsfolk hid into the cave. They try to hide to survive but there seems to be no hope in the dark cave. As time goes by, people suffer from severe cold and hunger while staying in the cave.
      One day, it still seems that nothing has changed. A man who worries about his pigs tries to get back home to feed them but the rest stop him. With nothing but frustration, rifts develop as people debate if they should move to the higher mountain or just stay in the cave.
