|Synopsis||Mija lives with her middle-schooler grandson in a small suburban city located along the Han River. She is a dandy old lady who
likes to dress up in flower-decorated hats and fashionable outfits, but she is also an unpredictable character with an inquisitive
mind. By chance she takes a ‘poetry’ class at a neighborhood cultural center and is challenged to write a poem for the first
time in her life.
Her quest for poetic inspiration begins with observing the everyday life she never intentionally took notice of before to find
beauty within it. And with this, Mija is delightfully surprised with newfound trepidation as if she were a little girl discovering things
for the first time in her life.
But when she is suddenly faced with a reality harsh beyond her imagination, she realizes perhaps life is not as beautiful as she
had thought it is…
