G-Voice is a gay men's choir that meets every weekend to sing, rejoice and heal. Members of the choir come from all walks of life. There are doctors, students, pharmacists and activists. The choir acts as a respite from and a means to challenge homophobic aspects of South Korean society. For their 10th anniversary, they plan to put on their biggest concert yet, which pushes many members to their vocal and emotional limits. Following rehearsals and conversations with the subjects director Dong-ha Lee provides insight into contemporary, gay, Korean life.
