The documentary tells about a Hansen\'s disease (leprosy) patient whose being has been rejected by society and history. It crosscuts a 78-year-old lady\'s memory of the history of So-rok Island which was established as a leprosy island by the Japanese during colonial rule. The director calmly shows how an ordinary woman has lived an adverse life. Other Hansen\'s disease patients including the old lady in So-rok Island, who cannot easily throw off their yoke as \'lepers\', are still struggling against the Japanese isolation policy of Hansen\'s disease victims. Retroacting a history into an individual\'s memory, Lady Camellia criticizes the colonial policies of Japanese imperialism through woman\'s life with Hansen\'s disease. It is the latest work of PARK Jeong-suk who has been digging into women worker\'s issue for a long time. (KIM Sunah)
