A Korean American immigrant mother’s addiction shatters her family. After the mother’s unexpected death, her sister, Kyung-Hee, becomes the caregiver to the motherless children. Their father, Mr. Cho, struggling to pay back the gambling debt his wife left behind, works two jobs back to back. With barely enough money to feed his family, his problems deepen when his boss turns on him.
