Low-ranking civil servant Pil Yong (Park Joong Hoon) does not have things easy taking care of a wife (Ye Ji Won) with mobility problems. He takes charge of a hanji project in hopes it will bring him a promotion and deepen his bond with his wife, who comes from a family of hanji masters. One of his tasks include working with quarrelsome filmmaker Ji Won (Kang Su Yeon), who is traveling around shooting a documentary about hanji. Though Pil Yong knows little about the subject to begin with, the more he learns about hanji, the more it takes on a new significance for him and the world around him.
In the past, Im Kwon Taek brought the traditional Korean folk music of pansori to the silver screen in his internationally renowned films Sopyonje and Beyond the Years. For his 101st film and first HD feature, the legendary director weaves a handsome, modern fable around another Korean tradition, Hanji, or paper art. The film is both informative and poetic in its exploration of the art of traditional papermaking and its role in the mediation of past and future, old and new, in present-day Korea. Acclaimed actor Park Joong Hyun stars as the flawed everyman whose eye-opening journey into hanji is shared by the audience. Leading actress Kang Su Yeon reunites with the director 20 years after starring in Im's classic Come, Come, Come Upwards.
