Ah… Came home after a movie and receiving a present…
Although I couldnt stop laughing the whole time while I was watching (the movie), its a story that cannot be easily overlooked… hence, an even more heartbreaking movie.
In order to focus more, I went alone to the theatre in the middle of the night.
The couple next to me was crying so badly that I eventually came out of the theatre… ㅜㅜ
Have to watch it again~ah~ This is the first time after “Present” where I feel like continuing to watch a drama in the theatre.
Lee Yong-gu is a mentally challenged man with an intelligence of a 6 year-old, which is actually the age of his own daughter Yesung who is much smarter than her peers. The two of them lead a happy life on their own while Yong-gu makes a living by working as a parking attendant at a local supermarket. But one day, when the police commissioner’s young daughter dies in a strange accident, Yong-gu who happens to find her is falsely accused and sentenced to death for abduction, sexual assault, and murder of a minor. Yesung is sent to a childcare institution and Yong-gu gets imprisoned and assigned to Cell No.7.
At first, other inmates in the cell keep their guard against Yong-gu on death roll, then realize that there’s something wrong with him. Not understanding his own dire situation, Yong-gu only worries about his daughter. One day, he saves his fellow cellmate, an influential figure in the prison, from an attack by his rival. In return for saving his life, Yong-gu is granted a wish: to see his daughter Yesung again. The inmates put their heads together to carry out a daring operation and miraculously succeed in sneaking Yesung into Cell No.7 during a religious event. While the father and daughter rejoice, the others realize it was relatively easy getting her in, but impossible getting her out. After a while, Yesung is detected and sent back, but during the time the inmates as well as the prison guards come to realize that Yong-gu was falsely charged. And they all put their heads together to prepare him for his final trial.
