Synopsis

Kwang-Ja Lee, a counsellor at ‘Lifeline Korea’ has been listening to anonymous people’s stories for 45 years. Every day, she is all ears to stories that cannot be shared anywhere else. Image and sound react to it and creates new reflective space that seems to be the bottom of one’s heart.

About thirty-seven people kill themselves every day in South Korea. And it often ranks the highest suicide rate in the world. These days, ‘Lifeline Korea’ gets around 60 calls a day. This film isn’t simply about emphasising serious suicide rate of South Korea, nor is it about providing solutions. Rather, it tries to shed light on how people and society should approach the suicide matter. How can we look into other people’s problems properly? And how can we change our attitudes to empathy? As seen in the title, ‘Like You Know It All’ questions our attitude towards other people’s problems.
