The sole breadwinner of his family, office worker Cheol-ho is plagued by a toothache but dare not visit a dentist because of his meagre income. He wanders around despondently as his closed ones – his pregnant wife, his unemployed brother, his deranged mother and his prostitute sister – struggle to survive in the devastated city of post-war Seoul.

Banned when it was first released in 1961 for alleged sympathies with the enemy in the North, this uncompromising portrait of the post war realities of South Korea is now widely regarded as the finest in Korean cinema’s history.
