The power of sport as a means of unification is flawlessly illustrated in director MUN Hyeon-seong’s dramatic retelling of the historical story of the first-ever post-war Unified Korea sports team assembled to compete at the 1991 World Table Tennis Championships. Created to symbolize a form of truce, the team is combined of both North and South Korean women under a new aegis of “Korea”. These players, once relentless opponents, are now forced to forget their past and swallow their own ambitions in order to become a team and chase after a victory that holds more weight and meaning than ever before.
