Program Notes

An international incident: two North Korean soldiers have been shot in the fortified DMZ that separates the Koreas, and a South Korean soldier (Lee Byung-hun) stands accused. It’s up to an officer from neutral Switzerland (Lee Young-ae) to try to quash an international incident and find the truth, and her investigation touches on the still-bleeding wound of partition. Park employs a deft flashback structure to slowly reveal a particularly Korean tragedy.
