    • SYNOPSIS
      Forty-something screenwriter Gaeul lives with a 17-year Joseph. Her family cannot understand any aspect of her life: raising a cat, living on vegetables, and moreover, a 17-year old lover! To them, Gaeul's love life is nothing more than a dirty scandal. To make things worse, Gaeul becomes pregnant, and when Gaeul's family gets to know about it, their conflict goes deeper. Joseph tries to persuade his family but soon he's confined to a psychiatric hospital by his own parents. To save Joseph, Gaeul decides to have an abortion. However she suffers from the terrible guilt after abortion, and this drives her so far to demand the hospital to give back her killed baby.
