Danielle, a young musician, sets off on a journey with Diego, her best friend, while both face the pain of a breakup with their partners. Ending up at the north border of Mexico, they’ll have to use their abilities as musicians to survive as they get to know the complicated context between the US and Mexico. Two broken hearts, two friends, a road trip, and a new lover, but fundamentally, a deep need to find themselves, makes Wintersong a movie about youth.
Guitarist Daniel and trumpet player Diego are friends from childhood. After separating from their lovers respectively, they go on a trip together to forget their broken heart. After reaching Tijuana, Mexico’s northern border with the United States, they sing in a nightclub for a living. Daniel meets Alex with a free spirit, while Diego spends his time hanging out with local kids and taking pictures of the neighborhood. The film, reminiscent of the road movies by Wim Wenders, shows the main characters’ efforts to overcome their wounds on their own. (Noh Kwangwoo)
