=========================

<SYNOPSIS>

A group of women climbs a summer mountain situated in South Korea. They are refugees who have settled in the South Korean society after fleeing from North Korea. Despite their wish to lead a new life in the South Korean society, the conflicts that forbid them from settling down roots in neither North nor South and the longings for home follow them everywhere like a shadow. For them, climbing the mountains has been an unavoidable journey for survival—a matter of life and death—unlike for South Koreans, to whom is merely a matter of leisure and fitness. During the course of climbing the mountains, their heartbreaking stories unfold in front of the beautiful scenery, as though in a landscape painting. ‘Ryeohaeng’ means ‘Yeohaeng(journey)’ in North Korean dialect.

남한에 위치한 여름 산을 여성들이 오르기 시작한다. 그녀들은 북한을 탈출해 남한 사회에 정착한 (난민)여성들이다. 남한 사회에서 다시 태어나고 싶다는 바램과 다르게 남북한 어느 쪽에도 뿌리내릴 수 없는 갈등, 불안의 그림자 그리고 고향에 대한 그림움이 그들 곁을 항상 따라 다닌다. 그녀들의 산행은 남한 사람들이 힐링과 여가생활로 생각하는 산행과는 다르게 삶과 죽음, 생존을 위해 꼭 넘어야 했던 여정이었다. 산을 오르며 들려주는 그녀들의 가슴 아픈 사연들이 아름다운 풍경과 함께 산수화처럼 하나 둘씩 펼쳐진다. ‘려행’은 북한에서 ‘여행’이라는 의미를 가진 말이다.
