Mija is a grandmother who lives with her middle-school grandson in a small suburban city located along the Han River, in South Korea. A happy-go-lucky woman who likes to dress in flower-decorated hats and fashionable outfits, Mija is also an unpredictable character with an inquisitive mind. All of the sudden, she decides to take a poetry class at a neighborhood cultural center, and throws herself into the challenging task of writing a poem for the first time in her life. Following her instructor's guidance, Mija begins her quest for poetic inspiration by opening herself to life's small pleasures and observing everyday life. But when she is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, and discovers that her grandson is involved in a horrific crime, she quickly realizes that life is not as beautiful as she had thought it was.<br /> Note: Film is presented in Korean with English subtitles.
