  • Synopsis
  • Winner of the Best Documentary of Sundance and Pusang Film Festivals, Old Partner captures a touching and close relationship between an elderly farmer CHOI and his old cow. CHOI suffered from poliomyelitis as a child; with an atrophied leg it has always been difficult for him to even walk without a cane.

    80 years old, CHOI is a nearly deaf farmer with a limp. He has an old ox that he’s worked for 30 years, and the ox aged no less than 40. However, there’s something special about the way Old CHOI treats this ox, which is so worn-out that it might drop dead any minute. The old man is single-mindedly focused on the ox, instinctively turning to the beast when he hears the cowbell even though he’s nearly deaf. One spring day, however, Old CHOI learns that his ox only has a year to live, which greatly troubles him.
