Synopsis
Osaka Korean High School has continued to provide an ethnocentric education for over 60 years in Japan. It is located within 20 minutes of Kintetsu Hanazono Rugby Stadium which is a mecca for Japanese High School rugby tournaments. But, it was only in 1994 that Japan' s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology had allowed the official entry of Osaka Korean High School' s rugby team in the tournaments. This was 18 years after the team was first formed.
Due to Japan' s discriminatory policy, Korean schools in Japan are unable to receive any support from the Japanese government. However, Osaka Korean High School' s rugby team annually enters the national tournament as a representative of Osaka Prefecture and it is recognized as a strong winning candidate. This is because they enter each game embracing in their hearts the aspirations of 600,000 Korean residents in Japan who are discriminated. Under the slogan of ' One, Trust, Victory' and with the hopes of 600,000 Korean residents in Japan in the team players' hearts, will Osaka Korean High School' s rugby team come out the winner over Japan' s strong teams? is a film that makes one think about life of coexistence through rugby' s ' No Side spirit' as well as about the struggles and the lively growth of the kids of the rugby team.

Director's Note
After the liberation of Korea from Japanese rule, more than 600,000 Koreans from the Korean Peninsula were living in Japan. In order to learn the Korean language that was banned under the Japanese rule, Korean language schools were established all across Japan and marked the beginning of Korean schools in Japan. However, the current Japanese government does not recognize Korean schools in Japan. Furthermore, these students are robbed of the right to free education that should be equally available to anyone because of the fact that they are Korean residents in Japan. By telling the story of Osaka Korean High School' s rugby team, I wanted to let people know about such discrimination in education and the rugby team' s sweat and tears as well as the sound of earnest cheering from the Korean residents in Japan who have become one.
