Adapted from a fairy tale by the writer-poet Jeong Chae-bong, this is the story of a five-year-old boy, Gilson, traveling in search of his mother. Believing that she will be found in the place where the wind starts, Gilson sets out on a trek with his blind older sister. When the youngsters are met by Buddhist monks who take them in, their journey progresses from a physical search to a spiritual quest. With visually stunning, hand-drawn animation, Oseam presents themes of beauty, tragedy, and never-ending love that underscore the tenets of Buddhist tradition. This film is shown in honor of the 2018 Winter Olympics host country, South Korea.
