Hyun-soon makes a modest living by delivering milk. She maintains a set of unorthodox cult-like religious beliefs that she has kept secret from most of her family for years, telling only her daughter and mother. When her mother falls into a deep coma, Hyun-soon’s brother and sister argue that they should remove her from life support, which enrages Hyun-soon. As her daughter and son-in-law decide which side of the argument to support, Hyun-soon must confront the ethics of life and death, and the outsider status she has created for herself through her unconventional beliefs.
"This film is about a middle-aged woman who stands at the crossroads of religious conviction and cold reality. It's also about three generations: grandmother, daughter and granddaughter."
