Hwacheon asks to bury her husband’s dead body who did suicide, in Seoam´s backyard.
Who owns the land? Not the women who cultivate the land. As the craze for redevelopment projects ignites men’s desires, the entire village is inflamed with greedy conflicts. The village men claim that now it is time to live like a human being. They don’t seem to care about innocent death to achieve the well-being of their family. The concept of pariah capitalism lies in their mind. That is why the land of milk and honey is tainted with the shadow of death, and the land for crops is filled with bargaining and negotiation to cash in more by building apartment buildings. Originally, the land belongs to nature. A woman grabs an earthworm and says, “The land belongs to this thing. I will bury it here.” Keeping the basic decency of humanity, women in the village stand against the men who mind any negative impact on redevelopment projects. Their cry for living like a human being goes in vain, and the land will be covered with concrete. The barren landscape with no humanity seems very dreadful. (HUH Namwoong)
