He is not their uncle, and his name is not Joe. But to the old ladies of An-dong, a rural community in South Korea, the deliveryman Uncle Joe is almost the only contact they have with the modern world. With young people leaving for school or higher paying jobs in the cities, the elderly are left behind. Sinae Ha and Wooyoung Choi’s film shows how Joe serves this community with love and attention.
