It would not have taken much for Su-mi to jump into the depth. The girl, who grew up in an orphanage and is now standing on the edge of a bridge, is fed up with life, is bullied by everyone and enjoys neither attention nor human warmth, not to mention love. Only hospice nurse Seo-jin manages to stop the young high school student from committing suicide and, like a mother, offers her a refuge – her own flat and a place to work in a home where the seriously ill inmates only wait to die. But appearances are deceptive – they are downright addicted to life. With her obligatory, loud and clear “good morning” to the residents, the new employee Su-mi is reminded of the preciousness of earthly existence every day. Su-mi gets on especially well with elderly, grumpy Mr. In-soo. She is supposed to still teach him how to read and write, and an intimate friendship develops between them. Her relationships with the others are also characterised by such cordiality that Su-mi almost forgets the approaching end for each one of them.
