An ode to old women who have lived with memories of war that couldn’t pass out.
The Cold war, Politics, Ideology, confrontation and conflict between religions became a cause to the outbreak of war in 20th century of Asia. The victims of war who have suffered most are the deceased, children and women. Here is a Korean woman who went through the Korean War, the Vietnam War and Iran-Iraq War. And there is a Vietnamese woman who lost her family in a massacre during the war. Also there is an Iranian woman who lost her son in the war. We could see deeply and slowly into our lives that we couldn’t have consider through Iran and Vietnam, Present and Past, totally different world between the deceased and the living, a Place and People that couldn’t easily contact.
