We Shall Overcome Someday


Another "Romeo and Juliet" story, staged in Kyoto, 1968. A nice, normal, nonviolent type high school boy happened to fall in love with "Resident Korean" girl when she was playing a Korean folk song, "Imjin River," on a flute. Then he tries to master the song to get close to her. The story concentrates on his struggle to not only master a song, but win the love of a girl who seems to live in an alien, hostile world. Enthusiastically supported by young film goers, Recorded over 6 million USD domestic box office in 2006.
