Summary note
"James PARKER had been adopted into a loving American family at age 5 and grew up healthy and happy. However, he always had a sense of longing to find his birth parents. Now, James enlists as a soldier in the U.S. armed forces in Korea and returns in search for his real parents. With the help of his KATUSA (Korean Augmentation Troops to the United States Army) friend, Joseph SHIN, James is able to find and visit the nursery in Choon-chun where he had briefly stayed before being adopted abroad. There, he learns that his Korean name was 'Eun-chul GOHNG'. He then decides to appear on a national TV program to help find his birth parents. Through the TV program, James is able to meet a priest who knows his real father. However, out of the family that he wanted to find so much, James learns that his father is the only one alive and a criminal on death row who had served time for over 10 years. Later, James and his father have an awkward first meeting.With the headline 'Adopted son abroad meets father on death row', James and his father receive much attention from the mass media. As they get to know each other more through each visit, feelings start to grow. But the meeting between a father who could be sentenced to death at any minute and a son who must return to the States after his term in the military can only be heartbreaking."--Korean Movie Database (KMDb).
