“Beautiful and moving…A masterpiece.”

A grandmother in her sixties works as a caretaker while taking care of her very troubled teenage grandson. She enrolls in a poetry class to find a means of expression but soon finds that her mind is becoming less sharp. Iconic Korean star Yoon Jeong-hee came out of retirement to make this modern classic for director Lee Chang-Dong (BURNING).
