    • Granny lost her only son at car accident. Her deceased son left her his adopted 7 year-old daughter and letters to his illiterate mother. With a fear to reveal her illiteracy to her son, Granny hasn’t attempted to open letters from her son. Now, she comes to desire to read the letters but, the only place to teach alphabets to adult students from foreign countries is closed down as the only teacher is hospitalized. Nowhere to learn alphabets, Granny struggles through self-study. Dong-e, who is 7 year-old adopted kid of her son’s that Granny reluctantly and temporarily stays with, sees her granny’s struggle and helps her study with her books. But, Dong-e’s tutoring soon ends as she hasn’t mastered alphabets as a preschooler herself.
      Further nowhere to learn, Granny decides to attend an elementary school in a remote town as a first grader. And, now Granny helps Dong-e with alphabets and their awkward relationship begins to change slowly.
