Kim Siho, the director's grandfather, participated in the Vietnam War in December 1969. Through his story, the director imagines the images of her grandfather during wartime. She questions how his liberation can be connected with her liberation by listening to her grandfather's present life story, who is still suffering from exposure to defoliant.
Can one understand others through a camera? Your Liberation tries to believe in that possibility. The director meets her friends whose grandfathers had fought in the Vietnam War just like her grandfather. She tries to understand the lives and experiences of different generations by listening to their stories and looking directly into their grandfathers’ faces. Although the film deals with the bigger history of the Vietnam War, it sees the possibility that “you” and I can be connected through personal stories, such as him eating a banana for the first time or watching the sunset after a hard day of work.
