Itaewon, once known as a red-light district surrounding the U.S. military base in Korea, has recently been viewed as a hot area that symbolizes multinational restaurants and cultures in the media. This documentary is a story of three women who have been living in Itaewon, Seoul since the era that the town was run by U.S dollars of the U.S. Army.
