general note
Title from container.
During the Second World War, the Japanese Imperial Army abducted almost 200,000 young Korean women to torture and use as sex slaves. The few women who had the chance to return home, passed the end of their lives as pariahs of society. Eight of them, now in their eighties, keep on fighting for justice, even though their time is short. Over the course of one year, female director Hein S. Seok captured the daily lives of these survivors to collect their stories through their sincere words, paintings and songs. In this film, these "Halumni" (grandmothers), loving and full of humor, are no longer just victims of inhumanity, or the symbol of a vital fight: they have become our very own grandmothers.
