Synopsis

Hoh Yim adalah seorang letnan kolonel dan ayah tunggal yang tabah. Anak lelakinya, Gideon, adalah seorang kartunis politik dan blogger. Hubungan keduanya diterpa cobaan ketika Gideon harus bertanggung jawab atas sebuah kasus tabrak lari fatal yang menewaskan seorang penerjemah wanita muda Korea yang hidup di Singapura. Demi menebus kesalahan anak lelakinya, Hoh Yim melakukan perjalanan ke Korea Selatan untuk berdamai dengan orangtua korban. Perjalanan itu justru membawanya mengenali dirinya sendiri yang tidak pernah dibayangkan sebelumnya.

Hoh Yim, a stoic, retired lieutenant colonel and single father. His son, Gideon, is a political cartoonist and blogger. Their relationship is tested when Gideon is responsible for a fatal hit-and-run which resulted in the death of a young female Korean translator living in Singapore. In an effort to atone for his son’s actions, Hoh Yim travels to South Korea to reconcile with the victim’s parents but learns far more about himself than he ever expected to.
