A 90-minute ad for the virtues of country life, made to encourage people to stay in their villages and not to move to Pyongyang where better work opportunities and living conditions are available. Middle-aged architect Song-hwa secretly returns to his native village and, in flashback, recalls how he left as an ambitious young man for the bright lights of Pyongyang, and how his idealistic team-leader girlfriend Song-rim, nicknamed "Bellflower", told him never to return. She even made him to sign a note to that effect. The villagers and Song-rim are still bitter about his betrayal of village values, so Song-hwa smuggles his son into the place to reconnoitre in advance. Very late 1970s Mainland Chinese in style, and at times almost a semi-musical, this rural drama is attractively shot in rich colours.
