Plot Synopsis by AsianWiki Staff ©
The Korean war does not start well for the US. They are being routed by the North
Koreans and In July 1950, the early stage of the Korean War, at the Jugok Village in
the middle of the Korean Peninsula, Chang-yee and his friends grow excited over the
amateur singing contest knowing nothing about what is going on around them. At
the time, the US Army keeps losing and are pushed back to the village, evacuating all
villagers to head south.
The villagers took refuge like going on a picnic believing that the US Army is protecting
them, they just follow their orders moving south bound. (But word is circulating among
the US forces that Northern soldiers may be hiding among the civilian refugees.) As the
villagers approach Nogunri, an American airplane suddenly swoops in and bombs the
villagers and the US soldiers who were in a defensive position begin firing at them. The
villagers fall to the ground NOT knowing why they are shot by the US soldiers. In the
end, among the 300 refugees who escaped to the cave, only 25 miraculously survive the
massacre, the fierce 4–day battle.
- Based on the Pulitzer Prize winning investigative report (2000) and the book, ‘The Bridge at Nogunri’ (2002) by Jun-seok Bang.
