    • Synopsis
    • In Ryangkang-do, a rural area in North Korea, Jong-Soo’s dream is to go to Pyungyang, where the Great General KIM lives. To go to Pyungyang, he has to collect and donate coppers for the Great General as much as other friends in his class can do. But, he’s rejected on board to Pyungyang and wanders woods in grief. Weeping under a tree, he finds a balloon, hanging over his head, within Christmas gifts and a toy robot from Seoul, South Korea. And, the toy robot makes Jong-Soo popular, who was once outcast. Town kids bring Jong-Soo foods and other necessities in order to see and touch the robot. While the robot becomes a way to collect gasoline for his sick younger brother to visit a hospital in Pyungyang, there happens to be some kids who want to take the robot from Jong-Soo.
