Hyun-ju is on her way to meet her first love after 12 years in a taxi along a coastal road. While listening to her story, the driver deeply relates to her and wishes her the best reunion.
Crying In a Butterfly’s Embrace is a film that carries Song Gil-han’s unique emotions. The film is about Hyunju, who starts a journey to find her first love, Min-seop. Hyunju travels with Sun-ho in a cab only to find that Min-seop has left the town for a temple in Chungcheong-do. Feeling hopeless, Hyunju leaves the town after spending the night with Sun-ho and leaving him behind. As a road movie, it is worth focusing on the method of visualization of the road: the very winding and steep road is an allegory for life’s steep path. The secluded town mirrors the vagrant life of its writer, Song Gil-han. A drunk man who is heading to his daughter’s house, a couple not minding what others think and only into their own world - the intention of picturing the same, simple life style can be noticed in all who enter the same taxi.
