Abstract:

A tale of star-crossed love, political turmoil, and the dangers of seeking freedom in a new world, Black Flower is an epic story based on a little-known moment in history.

In 1904, as the Russo-Japanese War deepened, Asia was parceled out to rising powers and the Korean empire was annexed by Japan. Facing war and the loss of their nation, more than a thousand Koreans left their homes to seek possibility elsewhere-- in unknown Mexico. They disembark with the promise of land, but soon they discover the truth: they have been sold into indentured servitude. A tale of star-crossed love, political turmoil, and the dangers of seeking freedom in a new world, based on a little-known moment in history.
