The grannies from Chilgok memorised the multiplication table in Japanese and lived their entire lives illiterate in Korean following the Japanese occupiers banning the use and teaching of the Korean language in schools in 1937. The grandmothers have given everything for their children's education despite the backbreaking burden and workload. When a Korean language school opens in their village, it sparks a fire in their hearts. They learn the Korean alphabet and become literary ladies who see poetry everywhere. It’s a gentle and cheering reminder that learning and living fully doesn’t stop with age.
