Mija is leading a quiet life with her only grandson. But then two events shatter her world: She is told that she has Alzheimer’s, and that her grandson was involved in a felony crime. The fragile old lady’s only comfort is a poetry class at the community college. A film full of humanity and life’s wisdom which won the writer, filmmaker and former South Korean minister for culture Chang-dong Lee (BURNING) more than twenty international awards.
