Every Thursday, two wounded souls find each other a way to redemption and a reason to live.
Yoon-su is a 27-year-old man under sentence of death. In his childhood, he and his younger brother are abandoned by their parents and left homeless. They live in subway stations begging for money and get occasionally beat up by other beggars. Yoon-su’s brother, who wanted Nike sneakers for his birthday, never wakes up one winter and leaves Yoon-su alone on the cold street. Yoon-su, now grown up, delivers gas cylinders for a living and has a pregnant girlfriend. While seeking money for her girlfriend’s medical treatment, he gets entangled in a fatal crime that ends up sentencing him for murdering three people
You-jeong is a lecturer at an art school and former singer who sung the national anthem as most memorably as Yoon’s younger brother could remember. She is raised in a rich family but emotionally scarred from her cousin’s sexual abuse and mother’s negligence. To escape from her painful childhood memory, she obsessively attempts suicide yet never succeeds. In the last winter of Yoon-su’s imprisonment, You-jeong is dragged by her aunt Sister Monica to meet Yoon-su at the prison’s interview room. Yoon-su and You-jeong begin in stand-off, but slowly begin to see themselves in each other and embrace their wounded past. You-jeong tries hard to help reduce Yoon-su’s charge, but he never sees next spring alive.
