A shocking documentary... Set in the context of the American Presence in Korea after World War II, the film reveals horrible atrocities at the hands of the U.S. military and Korean government. Using previously secret and classified photos, film, and documents, this is the first English-language documentary about the struggle of the brave people of Gangjeong Village opposing the military advance, just as their parents and relatives did.
They are resisting the construction of a massive naval base that will destroy their 400 year old village and UNESCO Biosphere preserve. And yet, their indomitable spirit will inspire and motivate everyone who believes there is a better way to live together on this planet. Then, as now, the people of Jeju are fighting for self-determination, basic human rights, an open and transparent democratic process, and the protection of this rare and beautiful environment.
