On the 20th of January 2009, tenants of Yongsan, whose houses had been evicted by force, died in a fire in the middle of the city. The flame reminds me of something I (the director) witnessed in 1991. I was a high school student when I saw a college student set himself on fire. That time people dubbed the politics as "the politics of burning oneself to death". In the June 1987 movement, TV and newspapers reported the death of Hanyol, who was my neighbor. This documentary is a deathbed portrait of Korea.
