Plot

On a rainy morning, little So-Won (Lee Re) leaves for school, which is not very far from her home. Her father works at a local factory and her mother runs a modest neighborhood stationary shop below their home. So-Won is supposed to walk to school with her friend, but her friend ditched her for his group of guy friends. So-Won does not make it to school.

Hours later, So-Won's father Dong-Hoon (Sol Kyung-Gu) receives a gut wrenching phone call from the police. So-Won is now hospitalized after being brutally sexually assaulted. Can their family put back the pieces of their once happy home?

lonelimess What is the title of the soundtrack in the last part? :)

Lily I watched this movie in the plane from Seoul to KL. It's very a good movie, I cried from the start till end of the movie. Recommended...must watch this movie.

madfly he got only 12 years for raping and almost killing an eight year old girl, giving her the trauma and lifetime disability. it was a disappointing punishment. it is a good movie, you will cry. my heart went out to the girl when she was in and out of consciousness. good acting for the mom, dad and the girl. hope for the girl and for the family to recover from the tragic incident, and that after 12 years the culprit must have been rehabilitated from alcoholism and everything. recommended must watch..

Sely Tha this movis is great, lots of meanings we can get. Damn for the culprit, hope he will be burnt in the hell.

Ki Must say I'm really surprised "Hope" won Best Film at the Blue Dragon Awards. I get why the director wanted to make the film - to show the family's recovery from a such a horrific and devastating incident. With that said, I wanted to see some hope after all the misery displayed in the film for the first hour and then this depressing court room scene came out of the blue which made me get up and leave. In retrospect, I think I would rather bang my head on the wall than watch this film again.

P.S. for a movie that will make you want to sit (cry?) in silence long after the film ends without any exploitative‎ feel, check out "Han Gong-Ju".

anna What a good year for Sol Kyung-Gu. All his movies did really well at the box office this year.

Choann He got 12 years. @ko it wasn't just that she got raped. This movie is based on a true story. Look up "nayoung case" and a few things should come up.

I saw it and I would reccomend it. You will cry though.

Seoyoung @ko Actually, the reason they're shocked I think is because the criminal only gets a sentence of 11 years (I think? I definitely heard 11 years.)

ko So I'm guessing the little girl got raped, and it was probably by a relative or someone who she and her family knew (hence the court scene when everyone was totally shocked).
