The film is a documentary about the life of a female shaman Kim Keum-hwa, who was shunned for being possessed by spirits as a girl and oppressed for following superstitions as an adult. It depicts how she grows to be a great shaman who embraces the pain of all people, and how she comes to be honoured as a national treasure of Korea because of her outstanding artistic talents throughout Korea’s tumultuous history. The film is based on the autobiography “Bidankkob Neom-Se” by Kim Keum-hwa.
