The inhabitants of the Pylon Village are always worrying about being moved on by the redevelopment program. It’s been decades since they settled down here, but they are still living in unauthorized housing. The original owner of this area, Pusan University of Foreign Studies, wants to resolve the conflict with them before the relocation of its campus in 2012. Residents have not yet given up all hope that everything will be alright, but still they feel unsettled and shed tears of despair. Nevertheless, they have vowed to protest any attempt to displace the village. The villagers each lead their own separate lives, but all keep planting and sowing on land they call home, as if willing their hopes and wishes to take root on the barren earth.
In downtown Busan, the city has become more urbanized and is filled with noise. The blue sky is obscured by the concrete beams of buildings that rise high into the air, each vying with the other for supremacy. There is a village on the hillside, known as Pylon Village, where the noise of machines resonates particularly loudly. 70 people in 53 families live together here. In the village, hopes have been raised and dashed time and time again. When will they be allowed to settle down in the village? All I want is to be able to see everything in this village for a long time.
