This schoolgirl hasn’t seen her father since she arrived at the boarding school, but they’re spending the weekend together.
Theirs was a tense family reunion.
She wasn’t close with her father. As a general in North Korea, he was the embodiment of the motherland — aloof with a stony-faced disposition.
Nonetheless, this was her chance to share her future dreams of pursuing music in America.
Little did she know that father came with his own intentions.
This weekend was no social call. He was here to test her loyalty towards the land they called home.
In this battle between love and loyalty, only one will emerge triumphant.
‘The Loyalist’ has travelled extensively across various international film festivals.
