    • Synopsis
    • Il-bum, who is suffering significant financial hardships because of a sick daughter’s hospital bills, barely makes a living out of doing a chauffeur service. But, soon Il-bum is fired from work, wrongly accused as a molester by a drunken woman customer. Although Il-bum tries to find a new job, it seems not so easy with his bad credit history. Luckily, with the help of a friend, Il-bum is introduced to a PR company that sells products such as health supplements to old women. However, the PR company is a virtually disguised company that provides free entertainment services to old women and makes them buy their products voluntarily. Il-bum feels shame to play a dirty trick on old women, but for his family, the only way for him to survive is to adapt to the job. Despite his initial concerns about the job, Il-bum starts to feel worth entertaining old women reminding of his mom and soon becomes the team leader. One day, Il-bum meets a new team member, Ok-nim whose son is a prosecutor. She lives alone because she doesn’t want to be a nuisance to her son. Il-bum and Ok-nim become good friends as she pays off his business debt burden and she feels the warmth and safety from him that she never does from her own son. But, the joy of their friendship wouldn’t hold long when Il-bum’s debts reaches beyond help and he faces harsh reality.
