Ae-Ran (Lee Joo-Sil, SUNNY, ROARING CURRENTS, TRAIN TO BUSAN) is getting older, but isn’t ready to retire just yet. She runs a neighborhood ‘banchan’ (korean side-dishes) shop, where she makes everything from scratch with her own secret recipes. While her deadbeat son may not appreciate her, the neighbors would be lost without her delicious dishes.

Meanwhile Ae-Ran’s son Gyu-Hyeon (Lee Jong-Hyuk, ATTACK THE GAS STATION, CRUSH AND BLUSH) is a total mess, unable to find a decent job, on the outs with his wife, and only visits his mother when he needs something (like food). But when Ae-Ran starts to show signs of dementia, she begins to forget how to cook altogether. Will Gyu-hyeon step up the plate or will her recipes be forever lost as her memory fades? A touching family drama about food from director Kim Sung-ho (HOW TO STEAL A DOG), NOTEBOOK FROM MY MOTHER is a sweet and delicious tale.
