Wan-deuk is a soft-spoken rebel who has all the makings of an at-risk youth. He comes from a poor family and is a quiet loner, who best expresses himself with his fists. He waits for the day he can escape the watchful eye of his meddling teacher and neighbor, Dong-ju. Dong-ju takes a particular interest in his young neighbor's life. One day, he blindsides Wan-deuk with some unexpected information: The mother Wan-deuk never knew is a Filipino immigrant and she wants to see him.

This was a great movie. It shows you that family can come in all shapes and sizes and that family can be strange and difficult but that the love of others in the end is what we are all looking for. Its about being poor and yet being rich with love. It is about growing up and how and trying to understand life This movie is funny and heartwarming. It makes you think and laugh and cry. I loved it

Hilarious and touching as well.
A glimpse at arranged cross-cultural marriages & poverty.

Entertaining! At the same time, it provides glimpses into the lives of illegals and migrants that constitute a growing part in the make-up of a metropolis like Seoul which have become a magnet for cheap labor.
