Synopsis: Romances end in blood and the frail hopes of individuals are torn apart in a vile karmic continuity of colonialism, civil war and occupation. Based on real life stories from the director’s life, and those known to him, it is set in the Korean countryside around a U.S. army base, and particularly involves misfits that are affected by its presence. This includes an unstable, near psychotic American soldier who survives on a diet of LSD and rage, before becoming ensnared with a one-eyed girl named Eun-Ok. Another story involves half caste Chang-Guk, who lives in an old U.S. army bus with his mother. She has taught Chang-Guk English in an attempt to prepare him for their new life in America, reunited with his father who she mails regularly, although the letters are always returned “”address unknown.””
