Flight to Freedom Transcript (Document)
Narration: Geum Hee is still a plane-ride from freedom. She knows she could be caught…and may never see her son again.
Bo Song (subtitle): When’s Mommy leaving?
Journalist (subtitle): Mom?
She’s leaving tomorrow.
Bo Song (subtitle): Tomorrow?
Geum Hee (subtitle): Why, Bo Song? What’s wrong, Bo Song? Why? Mommy will come back soon.
Bo Song (subtitle): I’ll call you.
Geum Hee (subtitle): Mommy loves Bo Song more than anything in the whole wide world. I promise that we’ll see each other again very soon. Don’t get sick.
Geum Hee (subtitle): Let’s meet again soon.
Geum Hee (subtitle): Pinky swear? OK?
Bo Song (subtitle): OK Mom. We’ll see each other very soon.
Geum Hee (subtitle): I love you.
Narration: At the airport, armed with her fake Chinese passport, Geum Hee will attempt to pass through immigration. Posing as a friend, one of the camera team follows her.
Lee Hark Joon: Toward the end we got bolder and bolder. We completely lost our perspective. If somebody had asked, “What if you got caught?” we would’ve answered “So be it.”
Narration: Then, in the blink of an eye….safety.
Geum Hee (subtitle): I can’t describe the feeling. I was so nervous because I have an accent. He asked me if I was Korean Chinese. I said I was Han Chinese. He stamped my passport and said, “Have a safe journey.”
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
