Synopsis
A 12-year-old girl, Hae-Kum, stumbles on a fainted woman while heading home after playing with her friends at a park. Hae-Kum and her friends stand still, not being able to go near the woman. Hae-Kum makes her mind straight and calls 911, sending the woman on an ambulance. After all the friends head home, Hae-Kum finds a placard that the woman dropped, which is a signboard that is looking for a missing child. She decides to find the child for the woman.
Direction
I asked the children, "What would you do if you saw a flyer about a missing child?" I made this movie by following their choices without a script. For some, this movie may be a fleeting memory, but I would like to believe that to others it will be one they remember forever.
