Cartoonist Jung returns to the South Korean
capital of Seoul. In the aftermath of the Korean War, countless Korean children are adopted. Jung is one of them. At the age of 5, he is found in the street and in 1971 ends up with a Belgian family where he has to find his own place among four brothers and sisters. In this story, based on true events and largely animated, he looks back on his
tough childhood. As a teenager, he fills his
parents with despair. Meanwhile, he wonders who or what he really is. He avoids other adopted Korean children and in protest even fantasises he is Japanese. It takes a long time before he reconciles himself with the facts and realises his new mother is a real mother, too. His drawing talent is a great help to him.
