Crossing the Border - Korea's Divided Families *RERUN
In October 2015, for the first time in 2 years, an inter-Korean family reunion took place near scenic Mt. Geumgang in North Korea. The meeting brought together 187 families who had been separated since the Korean peninsula split nearly 70 years ago. One of those families was a father and son who had not seen each other for 65 years. The father now 98, fled to South Korea from the North during the Korean War. Throughout his life, he regretted leaving his family behind, including a 5-year-old son. What was the father thinking as headed to North Korea? What did he have to talk about with his son, now 70, after all these years? This episode tells the story of one family trying to bridge the divide of war - and time.
