Mija (Yun Jung-hee), 66, lives with her teenage grandson in a small Korean town. Elegant with a dash of eccentric, she goes about life in a brimmed hat, a tidy scarf and floral prints that reflect the flowers she loves. She works as a housekeeper/caregiver for an elderly man (Kim Hi-ra). She also looks after her teenage grandson (Lee David).
Chance leads her to enrol in a poetry class at the local cultural center. For Mija, this represents an unfulfilled prophecy her grade three teacher once madethat Mija would become a poet. While Mija tries following the teacher's advice to look at ordinary objectsan apple, even a dish basinin a whole new way, she receives two jolts. Her memory is starting to go. And her grandson is involved in a monstrous crime.
