The Scribe

Ever since he was a young man in the Korean military, Pastor Abraham Jong Choi devoted his life to living truthfully and honestly. Along with preaching, he found a happy medium through seoye, Korean calligraphy. What started off as handwritten letters to his mother eventually evolved into beautifully painted scrolls recognized by his colleagues and organizations. The film explores Pastor Choi’s background in seoye and how its act of spreading wisdom connects to his ministry.
