This collaboration between acclaimed director Bong Joon-ho and Ryu Seonghie has definitely been the pair’s most fruitful work. The film centres on an unnamed middle aged widow who lives a meagre existence selling medicinal herbs and looking after her disabled son, Do-joon. When a local highschool girl is discovered murdered the police quickly suspect Do-joon and arrest him on circumstantial evidence. Horrified the Mother, convinced of her son’s innocence, looks to uncover the truth, forcing her to do whatever it takes to free her son.
