It is a proud haenyeo, belonging to an ancient lineage of fisherwomen who make their living diving in the deep sea of Jeju Island. One day, he sees a Japanese soldier go to the place on the beach where his little sister waits for her while guarding the catch of the day. His mother has told him again and again that they should never be alone with one of them. Terrified, swim to shore as fast as you can. Hana saves her little sister but she falls captured and will be driven later to Manchuria. But haenyeo women are powerful and strong. Will you find the way back home?South Korea, 2011. Emi has spent more than sixty years trying to forget the sacrifice her sister made, but she must face her past to find peace. Making your children part of your story may help you leave behind the legacy of war and find the strength to forgive. Full of emotions and hope, White Chrysanthemum tells the story of two sisters who love each other with a force capable of triumphing over the sinister evil of war.|
