104min | Release date in South Korea :

A good wife, a cheating husband, a very sexy family drama...
Hojung (Moon Sori) is a former dancer now settled down to taking care of her precocious 7 year old adopted son Sooin and her eccentric alcoholic father-in-law and a secretive mother-in-law. Her husband Youngjak (Hwang Jungmin), however, is hardly home, too busy with his law pratice, drinking, and seeing his young mistress, Yeon, a former model.

Hojung stays youthful and fit by practicing dance at the local school and bicycling while running her errands. She mostly accepts Youngjak's infidelity but she is getting more and more sexually frustrated to the point that she can't find her G-Spot. When a teenage boy living next door becomes infatuated with Hojung, she is at first curious but then drawn to his attention. Youngjak is not in love with the sexually-free Yeon but when she becomes pregnant, his guilt drives him to spend more time with her.

Then circumstances unfold force Hojung and Youngjak to actions and lead to decisions surprising and unexpected. The father-in-law's liver fails and he enters the hospital with a month to live. Youngjak is out of town with Yeon and on their way back there is an accident. Hojung's liaisons with the teenage boy are found out by the boy's father, and another tragedy occurs.

The family is never the same...
