Kyung-sook who works at a massage parlor, is diagnosed with thyroid cancer. One day, she receives a phone call and finds out her daughter is getting married. Her daughter has resented her for abandoning her with a gambling father. She is flattered by the bridesmaid request and spends all her hospital bills on marriage expenses.

A frequent PÖFF’s guest director Jeon Kyuhwan returns with his true style after the “Town” series and many different films.
