While illegally leaving North Korea, Mrs. B. is sold by her smugglers to a Chinese farmer. She becomes a smuggler herself and engages in a struggle to reunite with her sons. But the Intelligence Service gets involved…
ACID - Cannes 2016
To portray Mrs B., Jero Yun has no choice: it requires total commitment – three years of shooting, China, South Korea and an illegal and perilous trip across South-East Asia. The tale he tells is impressive in its scope. He follows on the heels of a woman who is trying to find out where and how to live, torn between three countries and two husbands. Always in motion, always moving towards an elsewhere, Mrs B. is at home nowhere. Wherever she is, with her children, with her Chinese husband or her North Korean husband, she’s always wondering where to go – in vain. It’s as if her balance were constantly upset by a border, and her private life colonised by geopolitics.
