Bucket List of a 17 Year Old

Five members of 8-piece high school rock band A.D.H.D. were killed in the Sewol ferry disaster on April 16th 2014. One of them, Su-hyeon, had written a bucket list that included, ‘do twenty A.D.H.D. gigs’. His surviving friends enlist help to reform the band in Su-hyeon’s memory.

Director Sol-ji Yoon follows their progress as we listen in on their thoughts, dreams, friendly banter, and of course music. A poignant portrait of friendship, loss, survival and perseverance.

Screened on the 5th anniversary of the Sewol disaster. In loving remembrance of the 304 victims, including 250 high school children.
