BOUND BY CHASTITY RULES

Synopsis

In a still rural and severely Confucianist Korea, beautiful Han joins the house of a very young husband. Unfortunately he prematurely dies, and Han must resign herself to live, beside a paragon of virtue mother-in-law, a life of contrition under the authority of the arch of chastity. But Korea is modernising. A seasonal worker back from Seoul falls passionately in love with her, and would like to see her shaking the yoke of traditions.
