Summary note
"Mi-suk is a textile artist living with her husband who is an obstetrician, and kind-hearted father-in-law. They own an attractive house in the rural area, with an old Acacia tree in the middle of the lawn. They seem to be a happy family, but Mi-suk still doesn't have a baby after 10 years of marriage. Do-il suggests adopting a child. After long consideration, she agrees. At the orphanage, she is drawn to the bizarre drawings of a tree. They decide to adopt the 6-year-old Jin-seong who had drawn that picture. Jin-seong is a quiet, shy boy. He has difficulty adjusting to the new family and surroundings, and keeps to himself, always near the acacia tree or drawing pictures. Mi-suk and Do-il love Jin-seong as their own, and the boy slowly starts to open himself to them, when Mi-suk gets pregnant. After the baby boy is born, Jin-seong's odd behavior seems to get worse. On a stormy night, Jin-seong disappears and the acacia tree that seemed to have been petrified starts to blossom again. Terrible things begin to happen to the family."--Korean Movie Database (KMDb).
