Synopsis
A tough milk delivery woman, Hyun-soon has a secret that she doesn' t want to reveal to others. Her unconscious old mother in a hospital and her pregnant daughter in her 20' s only know Hyun-soon’s secret. When her sister and brother are against to their mother' s life prolongation, Hyun-soon says weird things. As the family has noticed about her secret, they think that Hyun-soon is into a heretic. They plan to leave Hyun-soon out in the cold.
Director's Note
This film is about a middle-aged woman who stands at the cross roads of religious conviction and cold reality. Also, it' s about the affection under current in three generations from a grandmother, her daughter and to her granddaughter. I would like to express a process of their growth through family conflicts and reconciliations concerning a suspension of the grandmother' s life support machine.
