On my way back from a hill in a seaside military zone, I shoot a video illegally with my hand hanging on my side since any camera was forbidden. A soldier from the guardhouse stops me asking me where am I from. A conversation follows in which it is revealed the nostalgia of the soldier for his home and his belief for peace between the two Koreas.
