Spurred by the US government's plan to expand military bases in Pyeongtaek city, a war is being waged against the farmers of the South Korean village of Daechuri. In this joint effort by the South Korean and US governments to grab land that these farmers worked on for decades, schools and homes were destroyed, elderly women beaten, and thousands of police surrounded the village and enclosed it with barbed wire. This affecting documentary takes a look at the villagers and their struggle - and their difficult decisions on whether they can continue to stay and fight. Part of the Call for Change series.
