"When I looked the prettiest in my life, unfortunately then I was so unhappy, miserable and lonely."
This line from a poem may remind us of our mothers' lives.
This drama is the story of a family stirred by the sudden appearance of the mother's past boyfriend.
It's also the story of the daughter and other family members who realize that the good mother--who is also a wife and daughter-in-law--is also a woman and human being who has her own past history.
This is a sweet love letter by all the mothers in the world.
