Spring, 1999. On a railroad bridge overlooking an idyllic riverbank, Yong Ho (Sol Kyung Gu) faces an oncoming train. Distraught and beyond reason, Yong Ho shouts, "I'm going back!" right before the train takes his life...
Peppermint Candy takes viewers back before Yong Ho's death, and back through 20 years of the doomed man's life. Director Lee Chang Dong weaves an emotionally wrenching tale about the futility of dreams against the unstoppable march of time. Like Memento, Peppermint Candy unfolds in reverse, with each stop in time giving new insight into Yong Ho, as he becomes the man who will one day submit to his own death on a railroad bridge - the very same bridge beneath which he would declare his love for Sun Im (Moon So Ri) 20 years earlier...
Peppermint Candy is more than a portrait of one man's self-destructive regret. Lee Chang Dong takes Yong Ho and the audience through 20 years of turbulent Korean history, including a stop at the tragic Gwangju Massacre, where Yong Ho performs an act that will forever change his life.
