Sang-hyeon is the owner of a launderette and a volunteer at the nearby church, where his friend Dong-soo works. The two run an illegal business together: Sang-hyeon occasionally steals babies from the church's baby box with the help of Dong-soo, who deletes the church's CCTV footage that shows a baby was left there, and they sell them on the adoption black market. But when a young mother, So-young, comes back after having abandoned her baby, she discovers them and decides to go with them on a road-trip to interview the baby's potential infertile parents. Meanwhile, two detectives, Soo-jin and Detective Lee, are on their trail.Director's Bio:Hirokazu Kore-eda was born in Tokyo in 1962.
