The film follows three pregnant unmarried women at the institution “Aeshuwon” on the South Korean island called Jeju. Paradoxically, the nickname for Jeju Island is a “Honeymoon Island” due to its popularity as a destination for all newly wed Koreans. 15 women are currently living at the institution, which is isolated in the beautiful countryside of Jeju, and run by founder Mrs. Im and her staff. The three women will show theirprocess towards the difficult and painful decision – whether to keep the baby or give it away for adoption. A decision strongly influenced by a huge pressure from the outside world. Typically the disgrace of the family, the reluctance of the boyfriend, and the disdain of Korean society towards the women’s behavior and the unborn child, have a huge impact on the women’s final decision. However, at Aeshuwon the strong-willed Mrs Im supports the women and their fight for independence. But in the end the choice will always be the women’s own…
