Where are You Going? Seoul

The amazing stories of strangers in Seoul, uncovered by asking - Where are you going?

Catherine Carr travels to the South Korean city of Seoul and invites passers-by to stop for a moment and answer one question - Where are you going? She meets a Korean-American who regrets her decision to move to Seoul – a place her parents call ‘Hell City’ - to a wannabe author with a dark past. And she talks to a political refugee stuck in a passport-less limbo, and a couple in love, who simply cannot live together. These fleeting moments of intimacy are mixed with the sounds of the city to create an unpredictable and poetic audio portrait of Seoul.
