Synopsis: Jong-du, a young man just out of prison for manslaughter, is a social misfit: fidgety, snuffling, laughing inappropriately, without a super ego. When released, he calls on the family of the victim; they send him away, but not before he has seen Gong-ju, a young woman disabled severely by cerebral palsy. Both are abused by their families, and both are used by them as well. Although their relationship begins with Jong-du's criminal behavior, a friendship develops. They talk of favorite things; he washes her hair; they go out; in late night phone calls, he helps her past her fears of the dark. Is there a place in the world for these two inarticulate people?

You're angry, huh?

You're angry with me, right?

Jong-Du, as a favor,

please don't disrupt my life, okay?



I'm home!

What the hell are you wearing?

They sent you out like this

in the middle of winter?

It's because it was summer

when I went in

Ma, why is the place so shabby?

Since your brother was laid off...

He had to sell the apartment

to run a new business

Don't say anything!

Which is his room? This one?

Everybody, I'm back!


When did you get out?

Where's Jung-Min? Asleep?

Yes, don't wake him

But he hasn't seen me in ages!

My god, what is this? Jong-Du!

Hurry! Hurry!

Go wash your feet!

You see this mess on the floor?

Have you been in

a rice-paddy or something?

- Have you eaten?

- Yes.

Please lift the toilet seat!

Stop standing around and sit

It's late, I should be going

How did you find him

to bring him here?

Don't ask!

Where are we going to put him?

Ma, I got you a present

You think you've been abroad

or something?

Here, try it on

I'll try it on later

No, do it now

I told the guy I'd change it

if it doesn't fit

Sister-in-law, I'll buy you an

even better one later

Forget it!

Wow, Mrs Hong, you're a knockout!

How's business?

You quit?

Let's have a drink tonight!

It's been a while

You're busy?

You said you quit

Okay, Okay... I'm hanging up,

you bastard!

"The number you dialed

is no longer in service"

Sit down for a moment

It's about time you grew up

Do you know what that means?

Being an adult means you can't

just do whatever you like

You have to be responsible

for your actions

You have to fit in with society,

be aware of how others see you

That's what being

an adult is all about

Stop shaking your leg!

How old is he?

Just turned 28

He'll be 29 after the new year
