nkyoung(Director) had a nightmare. It was about, Ankhaa and Tucksuu, called ‘Mongolian Mom’ and ‘Mongolian Dad’, who got lost in a beautiful, cruel snowfield, and died of hunger and cold. She decided to go to Mongolia again. One year prior, Inkyoung was an NGO manager supervising work of planting trees to fight desertification in Mongolia. Working and living together with the native workers, she became like a daughter to them. However, Inkyoung gradually realized they lived a harsh life in extreme poverty. The goal of the NGO begins with good intentions but turns predatorily, nibbling away their lives with low wages.
Also she imposed the pride of the workers to justify their low wages.
Although she are not working there anymore, her guilty and anxiety toward the natives didn’t fade out. She starts the journey to find answers. What can she do for the unintended consequence she made? What is the range of responsibility between the good intension and the unintended consequence? She meets NGO executive, donator and whoever related to these questions.
When Inkyoung goes back to Mongolia she faces Ankhaa and Tucksuu again and talks to them openly about what she thinks. Do they live well unlike the dream of her? How will they react to her thoughts? What’s the answer Inkyoung choose at last?
