Haunting stories of the aftermath of war. The devastating hold the Korean War still has on the ordinary citizens of South Korea is revealed in a novella and four short stories. Although the war happened many years ago, old animosities remain, and elderly nursing home residents are traumatized by their belief that the new resident was a collaborator. A child is made a laughing stock when she thinks the condoms tossed aside on the beach by American G.I.s are balloons.
