The film tells the story of an elderly woman (played by Na Moon Hee) who constantly files complaints with the local office about the wrongs that she sees around her each day. Along the way, she forms an unlikely friendship with a junior civil service officer (played by Lee Je Hoon) who begins to teach her English.

What starts as a surface level comedy genre movie about a Grandmother, quickly develops and turns out in fact to be a deep
and historical drama about WW2 war crimes.
The film does an excellent job of weaving together many strong themes about courage, determination, language barrier, and optimistically reminding us that its never to late in life to learn, and we should always fight for whats what, and speak up.
Its a very powerful movie, that will move even the coldest of hearts to tears. Stellar performances by both leads. A+ movie all around.
