Synopsis

Since 2006, five workers have been protesting against the company Starflex and its previous owner. They are demanding the company keep its promise but the company refuses to negotiate with them. They choose extreme methods to let the public know about this. Protesting more than 10 years, they are on the edge of life.

 

Director's Statement

Korean public is indifferent to labour movements and struggles. They rather condemn the labourers. At first, I simply wanted to show this cruel reality to the international audience. When I got close to people and knew the situation deeply, however, I became more unsure of my position.
Why would they continue this futile struggle for more than 10 years; yet what is their power to continue this?
When I finally get to understand a bit of their mind, I wanted to ask the question to the audience.
How would you live if you are in the same situation?
