Summary
Yujeung - beautiful, bright, and wealthy - is lying in her hospital bed, recovering from her third suicide attempt, when she receives a visit that will change her life. Her no-nonsense aunt, a nun, appears and suggests Yujeung accompany her on a charitable visit to death row. At first, Yujeung is resistant. But something compels her to go to the prison, and there she meets Yunsu, a convicted murderer who will soon be put to death. Though repulsed by his crimes, Yujeung is struck by the depth of his suffering. She returns to visit him the next week. And the next...During their much-anticipated hour-long encounters, Yujeung and Yunsu slowly reveal to each other the dark secrets of their pasts, the hidden traumas that have shaped their lives and they form a deep bond. But Yunsu's hands are always in cuffs, the prison officers are permanently in the background, and the two young misfits can never lose sight of the fact that their happy time together is tragically brief
