In July 1989, budding Argentine documentary filmmaker José Luis García attended the last-ever USSR-sponsored international festival for communist youth in North Korea. There, he became entranced by young student Lim Su-kyung, a passionate advocate for Korean reunification who captured the public's imagination by promising to walk back home to South Korea, crossing the frontier at the heavily militarized Pyongyang border checkpoint. Now, more than twenty years after his visit to North Korea, García decides to track down Lim and discover what happened to the woman once dubbed "The Flower of Reunification" – and to find a way to finish his film.
