Head of the household, 11-year old Jin-ho lives with his sick mother who gathers & sells firewood. The one thing Jin-ho is most scared about is his mother dying and leaving him alone in North Korea. One day he has an argument with her about his friend and goes to the mountains alone to gather wood. However, he has an accident and loses his way. His mother looks for him everywhere but can’t find him. Jin-ho wanders around cold & hunger for several days and manages to come down from the mountains safely. He thought of his loving mother who would be waiting for him at home. But Jin-ho didn’t know that everything that happened was just the beginning of his misfortunes. “Winter Butterfly” is based on a true story and depicts the struggles of a mother and son in North Korea due to food shortages.
