Mother


Synopsis

A peaceful community is rocked by the horrific discovery of a murdered schoolgirl dangling over the ledge of a building. Local detectives, anxious to finger someone for the crime, unjustly convict a mentally challenged man. But in the mind of his fiercely protective mother, this case is far from closed. Fed up with incompetent officials, she conducts her own investigation into the killer's true identity. To clear her son's name, she's willing to do whatever it takes. Critically-acclaimed director Bong Joon-ho (The Host) delivers a chilling look at the depths of maternal devotion in this beautifully crafted murder mystery that draws you in and keeps you guessing at every turn.
