Korean grandmother Mija is a beautiful woman in her sixties who moves gracefully through life. With elegance and a dash of eccentricities, Mija takes care of her ungrateful grandson Wook and makes a living by cleaning house for an elderly man who, though paralyzed by a stroke, still responds to her charm with bouts of drug-induced arousal. On a whim, Mija enrolls in a poetry class at the local cultural centre and begins a personal request to find the perfect words to describe her feelings. However, she's plagued by the onset of Alzheimer's disease, and struggles with new vocabulary and the challenges of the creative process. When her world is turned upside down by the discovery of a monstrous crime, it's Mija's unique and touching poetry that allows her to defy the weight of shame and distance herself from a painful proximity to violence. The film is not rated.
