Film synopsis

""It doesn't matter if I die. I will say what I want to say."

During World War II, numerous girls and women were lured by fake promises to the Comfort Stations around the world where they were forced into sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army. Half a century later, the surviving victims in South Korea decided to give their testimonies to the world telling their horrible memories in the Comfort Stations and life-long traumas. The film shines a light on the atrocious sexual violence that occured around the world during this period, while employing metaphorical and fairytale-like visuals so as not to perpetuate violent imagery and revictimize the survivors.
