Marked from the get-go and unable to explain his story, Young Goo is put in jail, and is a possible candidate for the death sentence. In prison he is immediately hated by the prison ward Jang Min Hwan (Jung Jin Young), who also lost his son by a child molester, and is even beaten for asking to make a call.
After getting put in cell with five other inmates, Young Goo saves the leader of the five from a stab, and gets a wish granted - where he asks for his daughter.
The leader grants him the request, but now Young Goo and daughter Ye Sung refuse to get separated, and the date for Young Goo’s trial is getting closer and closer. Can he be saved?

Firstly I apologize for the short review, and quite boring one - I swear its better!
Okay, so I watched this not knowing anything about it, and rather than saying I was searching for it, I actually kind of stumbled on it. And I have to say, it really is one of the best movies I have watched ever. I cried so hard and for so long, I was a mess when it finished. There was not a single thing I didn’t like about this movie, seriously not a single thing. I mean the acting was superb and so was the cast, so nothing there. Also the screenplay and story were so well written and acted that I was satisfied afterwards. It’s a heartwarming and heart wrenching drama; so a definite recommendable movie!

☆☆☆☆☆ / 5 out of 5 stars
