But she never shares her feelings with her daughter. So when Saebom finds a secret love letter sent to Yunhee, she begins to wonder about her mother’s mysterious past. Sensing the opportunity for them to develop a closer relationship, Saebom concocts a plan to find the sender of the letter, and the two embark on a trip to Hokkaido, Japan. Exploring the liberating effects of generational change, Moonlit Winter is a heartfelt tale about a woman’s revisiting of her hidden past.
