Based on real-life historical events, Her Story explores the story of 10 Korean women, including three former comfort women—victims of forced sexual slavery at the hands of the Japanese Imperial Army—, and their fight for legal justice in the Japanese courts. From 1992 to 1998, these women traveled back and forth 23 times from their homes to Shimonoseki, Japan for a trial that ended in an unprecedented ruling that was partially in their favor, with several subsequent, but unsuccessful, appeals.
