Suitable from age 12. Recommended from age 12


Up until now, twelve-year old Jun-ho and his younger half-brother Sung-ho have been a great team. Himself being almost still a child, Jun-ho leads the family life, while his mother only returns late from work. But when the mother and the wife of Sung-ho’s father fall into a coma after an accident, Sung-ho is taken in by his father. At first, Sung-ho’s big brother stays behind alone. It almost seems as if Jung-ho could find a place for himself within the new family, but he feels that as an outsider, the unfamiliar home is frail. (StS)
