Synopsis:
Things were just starting to go right for Cui Shunji, a Korean-Chinese woman with a young son to support. A good-hearted cop arranged a license for her previously illegal kimchi cart, and she met a man to help carry her burden. But, as good fortune turns to bad, this socially conscious melodrama darkens. Beaten down, Shunji contemplates an extreme, pitiless act of revenge.
