Synopsis
Saebom (18), a high school student, lives with her mother Yunhee (41) who recently divorced. One day, Saebom finds a mysterious love letter sent to Yunhee. It′s from Hokkaido, Japan, and it makes Saebom wonder about the past of Yunhee she does not know. Finally, Saebom is able to convince Yunhee to visit Hokkaido with her to find the sender since she thinks it would be an opportunity to get to know Yunhee better and also Yunhee would be able to overcome her depression through this trip.
Director's Note
I want to raise a question of the stereotyped mother′s role which has been repeated to us again and again. Should the mother figure always be a form of devotion to the fathers, the husbands, and the sons? Is that really what it is? Of course not. In?Snow Moon, I want to portray a life of a woman who is not only a mother but also herself with her own personality and taste. Also, I want to talk about the various forms of love. I wish?that Snow Moon? will be a successful trial of mine contributing to the efforts to destroy those stereotypes which this world should have thrown away but have not yet.?
