This film tells the story of the struggle and legal trial brought by grandma SONG Sin-do who continually campaigned for redress in the issue of the ‘comfort women’ until her death in December 2017. ‘Comfort Women’ are those drafted into sexual slavery for Japanese troops during World War II. Although she lost the trial, her statement “My heart is not broken yet” reveals her desire to fight independently against the scars caused by the war and historical prejudice.
