After losing her own daughter in a tragic accident, Hon returns to her childhood home in the Korean countryside to look after her elderly father.

There, the discovery of a chest of letters compels her to piece together the violent, vibrant story of his life - from experiences of violence and trauma during the Korean War to a love affair and involvement in a religious sect, Hon learns that her father is more complex than she ever gave him credit for.

More than just a portrait of one man, I WENT TO SEE MY FATHER asks us to look at the ones we love, uncover the secrets they keep, and finally see who they really are. Affectionate, epic, joyous and lasting, this is the perfect follow-up to beloved classic PLEASE LOOK AFTER MOTHER.
