2h 5min | Drama | 22 September 2011 (South Korea)
Based on real events, this film depicts the story of a school for the hearing-impaired where young deaf students were sexually assaulted by the faculty members over a long period of time.
I recently became a fan of Yoo Gong and followed the links to this film, unlike anything I expected but so intense that I found myself yelling at the screen during certain scenes. Yoo Gong’s performance caused one of those reactions, when he snapped and went after the jerk in the hall and I gave a shout and a fist pump. Then all I could do was watch and shrink from the madness that ensued. Too real, too raw, particularly if you are a parent. Still I’m glad the horrifying acts of the evildoers came to light, even if they weren’t punished in the way I wished. A huge thank you to the writer and to those who acted to make the film. Change begins with awareness.
