Description

"Buoyed by Kim's powerful performance, Bong crafts a unique story of motherly love and devotion and turns it into one fantastic thriller."—From the Front Row

"Bong's opening and climactic scenes, in which the old woman bops around to a dance tune amid a vast field of yellow grass are typical of the movie's cockeyed poetry."
—Chicago Reader

A widow (Kim Hye-ja) resides with her mentally ill son (Won Bin) in a small Korean town. Mother and son are plunged into a nightmare when the body of a murdered young girl is discovered. Circumstantial evidence indicates the son is responsible, and he becomes the prime suspect in the police investigation. Betrayed by the legal system, the mother takes the law into her own hands to clear her son's name.
