Exhortations to put the common good above personal ambition are a recurrent theme of North Korean society guided by the Juche principle of self-reliance. In A Bellflower, a man crosses the mountains to return to his old home after many years away, full of regret for his youthful decision to follow a wandering indulgent life whilst his lover stayed behind to help convert her humble hometown, Pyokgye-ri, into a model village of Socialism.
