Jeong-won and her husband Sang-u are a happily married couple who are about to move into a new home and welcome a child into the world. Their happiness begins to crack when Jeong-won receives a call from the police informing her that the man who sexually assaulted her ten years ago has been caught. Jeong-won had kept this incident a secret from Sang-u but now her peaceful life begins to buckle as her past comes back to disrupt the relationships with those around her.
Director PARK uses great restraint to tell a realistic story of a person who uses distance to protect herself and others from a horrific crime finally turning around confronting it. As hard as this is for the main character, she shows great bravery and has support from those around her in a moving and constructive drama about how such a trauma can be overcome.
