In Moonlit Winter we meet four women: teenager Sae-bom and her divorced mother Yoon-hee who are making ends meet in South Korea; and veterinarian Jun and her aunt Masako who live together quietly in Japan. When Sae-bom intercepts a letter to her mother from Jun that hints at a past she never knew of, she convinces her mother to travel with her to Jun’s town and surreptitiously plans to find the mysterious woman her mother once loved.
With the serene beauty of Japanese winter as a stunning backdrop, we’re warmed by the tender bonds that tie these women to one another, and the tension of two people destined to reunite. Moonlit Winter overflows with joy tinged with regret, and captivates with its soft and gentle hopefulness.
