Synopsis:
In a quiet, rural village in South Korea, a lonely, single mother looks after her mentally handicapped son whilst scraping a living as an acupuncturist. But her simple, poverty stricken life is suddenly transformed into a dark web of death and deceit when her young son is arrested for the brutal murder of a local school girl. Convinced that her son has been framed, and faced with a corrupt, complacent police force, she decides to solve the case herself and prove his innocence. It's a quest for justice that leads her into a horrifying world of violence and despair.
But how far is she willing to go to uncover the truth? One of the most original and unconventional detective murder mysteries you'll ever likely to witness. Directed by Joon-Ho Bong, Mother is a darkly comic, suspense-driven masterpiece with a shocking revelation around every twisted corner it turns.
