9 at 38 is a documentary short that follows Hyungjoon Won, a Juilliard-trained violinist on his seven-year pursuit: a joint concert by North and South Korean musicians

In the week leading up to the concert, inspired musicians gather from around the world to Seoul to partake in the effort; however, military aggression, geopolitical paralysis, and apathy threaten to derail a dream that many called crazy to begin with -- and pursued at great sacrifice.
