A Man and A Woman

Synopsis: Sang-min comes to Finland to send her autistic son to a special camp, but she feels extremely alienated in snow covered-white Helsinki. Ki-hong is an architect working in Finland on dispatched duty. His family is not so perfect either with a daughter having child depression and mentally unease wife. The two meet for the first time at the gathering point of this special camp. They get to have a short trip to the camp together in silence but start to feel comfortable and connected to each other. On their way back to Helsinki, with the road blocked from heavy snow, Sang-min and Ki-hong are isolated in a cabin by the forest and lake. Carried away by irresistible passion, they spend a night together. But the next day, they go separate ways without asking each other's name...

Her session just ended.

We're heading home now.

Yeah, OK.

Dial 8282

Speedy Loan Loan King

Hurry to Loan Loan King

Here comes my handsome son!

Dial 8282


I was just wondering what song it is

the Jong-hwa sings all the time?

It's from a TV commercial in Korea.

OK. Good bye!

Go... go...

Hurry to Loan Loan King

There's a car coming.

What is it, Jong-hwa?

I was afraid you might get hurt.

Mom is sorry, okay?

Mom is sorry.

Yes, sorry.

Mom is sorry.

Mom is sorry.

Mom is sorry.

Kids who went to the camp

said it's great.

You'll have fun.

I'm worried you'll like it so much

you won't come back.

I love you.

Speedy Loan Loan King


I'm afraid not.

You have to follow our rules.

I'll just watch from a distance.

I won't get in your way.

Yes... But there's no point to

this camp, if parents comes along.

You just have to trust us

and let us take care of him

I promise.

I won't be in your way.

My son needs me with him.

If you're this concerned, then maybe

you should take him home with you.


Think about the reason

you came all the way here.

No interest for first two months

regardless of credit rating

Excuse me.

Do you have a light?

Thank you.

You're from Korea, right?


Is the camp far from here?

It's near Tampere.

It'll take 3 to 4 hours.

You're really okay with this?



You thanked me already.

Are you sure we're going

in the right direction?


You don't talk much.

Not really.

It's over there.

It's dangerous.

No, it's not. You can come.

Let's go to the camp.

Across this lake?

We need to get to the kids.

We can go by car,

but let's try this way.

Just kidding.

Let's go back now.

We're not seeing the kids?

It's okay.

I've seen where they are.

Your coffee.

Only one cup?

I don't drink coffee

because of my stomach.

But all they have to eat

are sandwiches.

Coffee is enough.

I think you should eat

something warm.

That would be nice,

but we'd better hurry.

Shall we?

How about finding

a place to eat first?

My treat.

You drove all this way.

This kind of food don't suit me.

My tastes are too Korean.

I like soybean paste

and that sort of thing.

So when I go abroad,

I carry around red-pepper paste.

Do you have it with you?


May I have it?

Is it good?


So you've been here two years.

Is life better here?

Well, it's alright.

It took some time

getting used to it.

But life is the same everywhere.


What kind of answer is that?

Vague and thoughtless.

I mean, it's nice.

Quiet and clean.

Lots of snow...

The road's blocked,

we need to wait.

Until when?

It has to stop snowing first,

so they don't know yet.

What shall we do?

You can probably catch a train

at Tampere.

Let's try that.

And you stay here alone?

I guess.

It's a common thing here.

Then I'll wait with you.

It might take really long.

It's alright,

we're near the camp anyways.

I'll bet the kids

are doing better than we are.

So did your girl get better

living here?

Well, yes and no.

- Another vague answer.

- No, I mean it.

You can't see progress on

the outside.

Depression isn't cured easily.

Oh, I thought she was like my son,

being at the same school.

The condition of my son is...

really quite bad.

Since coming here,

I check the time constantly.

I've lost all sense of

if it's day or night.

I've been there, too.

- You're up.

- Hi...

Why are you up so early?

I thought I'd take a walk.

We walked quite a bit,

are you okay?

I'm fine.

The place I work

is by a mountain.

So every day I walk

up and down the hill.

Which mountain?
