About the Film
Sang-hyun runs a laundry shop, but is constantly saddled with debt. Dong-soo, who grew up in an orphanage, works in a baby box facility. One night in the pouring rain, they secretly carry off an infant who was left at the baby box. But the following day, the mother So-young unexpectedly returns for her son Woo-sung. Realizing that her baby has been taken, she is about to call the police when the two men tell her everything. Their claim that they stole the baby in order to find him a good home seems outrageous, but So-young ends up joining Sang-hyun and Dong-soo on a journey to find new parents for Woo-sung.
Winner of 2 awards at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival including Best Actor.
