Quiet, atmospheric, a little chilly to the bone. A college graduate moves to Sokcho, a town nestled between North and South Korea, to work at a guesthouse during the off season. A traveling French graphic novelist visits Sokcho in search of inspiration. The two develop a bond that I can only describe as liminal, constantly between growing close while growing apart. The town and everything in it unfolds before us through our narrator’s eyes and the very second a thought comes to her head. It’s beautiful, a wintery cocoon, and deeply meditative.
