Struggling to feed a family of seven in the midst of a prolonged drought, a Korean farmer stalks his barren fields and painfully deliberates on a course of action to fend off starvation. It is a stark tale tinged with magical realism juxtaposing the fleeting innocence of childhood against the cruelties of poverty and the complex emotions of child abandonment. As a Korean adoptee, Joy Dietrich draws insightful parallels to the growing pains of the Korean adoptee community.
