The Guitar for Mother and Her Daughter traces the history of Korean pop music from the early 1940s through to the early 1960s, blending tragic family stories of separation and reunion into those twenty years. The cast includes Nam Il-hae and such famous pop stars of the time as Lee Mi-ja, An Jung-ae, and Connie Hong. Composer Son Mog-in was in charge of the film’s music and produced the theme song.
