Synopsis

Legendary Korean actress Hye-ja Kim plays the mother to 27-year-old Do-joon. Her entire existence revolves around her spoilt, selfish and frequently stupid son, who seems incapable of taking responsibility for himself and his actions. One day a young girl is found dead in an abandoned building and Do-joon is accused of murder. An inefficient lawyer and an apathetic police force make cursory investigations, leading to Do-joon's arrest for murder. Refusing to believe her son is guilty, and distrustful of everyone, Hye-ja channels all her maternal instincts into clearing his name. But in order to do this, she must find the real killer herself.
