A Distant Place is a wistful drama about love and family, set in the dazzling countryside of Hwacheon County in South Korea.

From a distance, Jin-woo’s quiet life in the country seems idyllic. He spends his days taking care of a sheep ranch with his niece and chosen family, tucked away from the stressful city life. When Hyun-min, Jin-woo’s longtime friend from university and former lover, unexpectedly shows up, tensions arise and the two men evaluate where they left off. To make matters more complicated, Jin-woo’s twin sister arrives after years of absence and demands to take her daughter back to the city. Now, Jin-woo’s once carefree life is thrown off-balance as he faces these surprising reunions.

A Distant Place is a heartfelt story of romance and the definition of family, gracefully captured through mesmerizing performances and breathtaking scenery.
