Film Description:

Yong-Ja lives in Seoul as the mother of a child, striving to sustain a living of a household and undaunted by the obstacles laying before her.

On her way to work rather late in a random morning on a weekend when she had this peculiar dream which she found to be very unusual, she urges her jobless husband to buy a lottery, thinking she already knows the numbers for a jackpot and even writing them down herself for him to see.

That night, when Yong Ja was under harsh labor until.late, she finds out on a real-time basis that the numbers she wrote down earlier during the morning and which she told her hubby to keep intact actually did hit the jackpot. This felt very unrealistic for her to believe, and she could hardly admit it. All this made her rush towards her house at the speed of light.

But what lay ahead waiting for her was only all the more shocking enough to make her taken aback, going beyond the boundaries of her common sense that would make her jaws open wide in horror and disbelief……..
