Kyung-jae is the youngest employee of a gang who works as an illegal immigration broker. Kyung-jae wants to leave the gang and starts his own business by driving a small truck but finds it difficult to do so due to his unpaid salary. On the other hand, Yu-hong, a Chinese girl who is trying to enter Korea illegally in hope of the Korean dream, faces a life or death situation after an accident. It seems that Kyung-jae can achieve his dream by crushing Yu-hong´s, but ironically, they find themselves in the same situation. Both Kyung-jae´s dream of a new life away from the bottom of Korean society and Yu-hong´s dream to achieve the Korean dream by crossing the Yellow Sea doesn´t seem easy to achieve. It is because this land is a “Frozen Land" that endlessly creates class distinction based on serial exploitation. The cleverness of the film is expressed when it shows the reality of labor market of Asia, human right issue of immigrants, and the life of lower class of Korean society through an illegal immigrant broker and an illegal immigrant girl. Appropriate color and realistic touch utilizing the screen size vividly shows the inflexible and inescapable reality. The film ends without a clear conclusion, but it is difficult to say that it suggests gloomy ending. It is because they still have to ´live´ in this frozen land.
