On one level this is a film about a familiar immigrant experience—a single mother emigrates from Korea to Canada with a young son, and both struggle to fit in. When the son reaches adolescence and behaves like a Canadian teenager, this presents new challenges for his bewildered mother. But it transcends the commonplace with a fresh voice and visuals which complement the superb acting to convey emotions which leave the most hardhearted reaching for the tissues. In the final third of the movie, mother and son visit Korea, and the tone changes – where life was muted and difficult, suddenly the landscape lightens and life opens up. Directed by Anthony Shin (himself a Korean immigrant to Canada), the film has won a number of awards and proved a crowd favourite at festivals.
