    Da-seul (Yoo) is nine years old and has autism. Her family is of modest means, consisting of an uncle (Kim) who waits tables at a nightclub and a grandmother (Joo) who works at a local factory drying squid. Together, they live in a small village with a picturesque view overlooking the ocean. While Da-seul’s family sees her as a simple, mentally challenged child, it soon becomes apparent that she has also inherited an incredible artistic talent.
