A documentary on the famous Korean painter Kim Tschang-Yeul, led by the questions of its son, contemporary arts artist living in France. Born in small village now in North Korea, having lived in New York and Paris, Kim Tschang-Yeul is very famous for the unique and fascinating pattern of his work : the water drop. Symbol of an asian serenity, this obsession hides still a tragic origin rooted in Korea’s history. This character with a bigger than life destiny will be revealed in all its complexity.
