In a remote mountainous village in Gangwon-do province, Jeong-Cheol, a simple labourer, is scraping for survival. The difficulties of rebuilding a derelict home are compounded by the responsibilities of providing for his young niece and his psychologically troubled sister. As winter approaches, Jeong-Cheol finds his family’s survival more fraught than ever, despite his uncompromising determination.

Director Park also serves as the protagonist in Alive, his sophomore effort after The Journals of Musan. Here, he demonstrates his sympathies for figures at society’s margins, as keenly encapsulated in the members of Jeong-Cheol’s family.

Gritty in aesthetics and existentialist in view, Park’s film is a disquieting meditation on human endurance.
