Overview

A fruitless love for an unfaithful man. The man took away her chance to become a mother while bearing a child with his wife. In despair, the scorned woman steals her child. What does it mean to be a mother? To live as a woman...? A tragedy over five years about the bonds between mother and child that surpass blood relations. A drama that looks a modern problem dead in the face.
