Screenplay by


110min | Release date in South Korea :

it's been a year since Hee-su vanished along with every penny of the family's money. Youn-ho, who works at a reconstruction company, ignores his mother's existence and yearns for a new life with his loving fiance Se-kyung. Single mother Seo-hee shows up asking Youn-ho for the money his mother borrowed despite once thinking of Hee-su as a mother figure. His mother's debtors' claims for payment become more and more aggressive, but Youn-ho lacks the means, or the will, to compensate for their losses. The persistent Seo-hee, however, proposes a deal: she'll drop any charges if Youn-ho agrees to meet his mother with her. Come meeting day, Seo-hee doesn't have any success, but Youn-ho witnesses Hee-su's frantic flight. Upon their return to Seoul, Seo-hee hears that Hee -su has turned herself in to police. Seo-hee visits Hee-su in jail and receives the devastating news that she will never get her money back. Meanwhile, things get worse for Youn-ho: he resorts to shady business practices in order to get an apartment and Se-kyung ends their relationship. Eventually, Hee-su comes home, not with her family but with Seo-hee, while Youn-ho hits rock bottom when he is physically attacked by a boy he had swindled.
