    • SYNOPSIS
      To ten year old Jjang and his friends, the upcoming singing contest is more important than news of war. It is July, 1950, a month into the Korean War, but life for Jjang and his fellow residents of this small Southern Korean village remains simple. War arrives abruptly when U.S. soldiers drive in and order all the villagers to leave, warning of incoming fighting. With children on their backs and carts laden with belongings, the villagers are told to go south by U.S. soldiers who promise trucks to transport them. The villagers find no trucks and continue south on foot but are forced off the road. War is not going well for the U.S. and word is circulating that North Korean soldiers may be hiding among the South Korean refugees. As the villagers walk along the railroad, American planes swoop in without warning and strafe and bomb the civilians, killing many. The survivors seek shelter under a railroad bridge culvert. Then U.S.soldiers receive orders to fire on the villagers...
