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 to their thoughts, dreams, teenage banter, and of course their music. A poignant look at friendship, loss and perseverance.
Screening is free, but donations are welcome. There will also be Sewol badges, ribbons and wristbands available, also free or by donation.
