A wound that was covered up without being cured properly is just a pause. Or maybe it's slowly festering while you don't notice it. "Way Back Home - 2019" is a story of a victim sexually assaulted 10 years ago facing the secret she covered up in the past. Jeong-won, who forgot the past and lives a peaceful marriage, receives a phone call from the police one day. The man who sexually assaulted her has been caught and the news shakes up the couple's life and breaks down their daily lives. Director Paek Sun-joo calmly follows the post-incident life and recovery process in the film, which has expanded her short story, Mild Fever. Pain comes alive even though there are no provocative or direct descriptions. The characters' reactions and careful production, which focused on the repercussions around the incident, captures honestly the hard time they suffer and the process of their wounds are healed. It is also good to watch that the current of emotions sweeping under the calm but still surface of the water is not missed. (SONG Kyungwon)
