    • Synopsis
    • Man-soo runs a car repair shop tucked in an alley of a small town. He lives with his elderly mother who suffers from dementia and his older brother who is a gambling addict. One day, his older brother threatens Man-soo for the contract to the shop after stripping him of everything, but Man-soo doesn't give in. But later on, his brother’s unavoidable death, his mother losing her memory, and his girlfriend leaving him because of his poverty all became heavy burdens on him. Man-soo locks himself in his room for a couple of days and is then sent to a mental institution later.
      Later on Man-soo comes under the delusion that he has become a millionaire. He issues blank checks to the patients at the hospital showing off his wealth and even doing good deeds for others. In particular, he likes the head nurse of his ward, Su-kyung. She has been taking care of her father who has been sick in the hospital for a long time. Su-kyung receives consolation from Man-soo’s bright smile and warm words although he's a mental health patient. But behind this bright smile hides his madness, not knowing what or when something will happen.
