Jung-ju has lost her son to heart disease and can’t break free from the pain of that loss. She spends most of her waking hours working, drinking, and going to church. One day, Min-gu, a young man newly out of prison joins her cleaning company. Looking shabby and his face covered with scars, Jung-ju recognizes Min-gu, the boy who Jung-ju and her husband had kidnapped 12 years ago for the ransom money for their son’s operation. Now Jung-ju’s life is disturbed by him. Inevitably, Jung-ju becomes curious about Min-gu as much as she feels guilty.
