Here is the “Mother” plot description:

The latest film from award-winning Korean director Bong Joon-ho (“The Host”) is a unique murder mystery about a mother’s primal love for her son. Mother is a devoted single parent to her simple-minded, 27-year-old son Do-joon. Often a source of anxiety to his mother, Do-joon behaves in foolish or simply dangerous ways.

One night while walking home drunk, he encounters a schoolgirl who he follows for a while before she disappears into a dark alley. The next morning, she is found dead in an abandoned building and Do-joon is accused of her murder.

An inefficient lawyer and an apathetic police force result in a speedy conviction. His mother refuses to believe her beloved son is guilty and immediately undertakes her own investigation to find the girl’s killer. In her obsessive quest to clear her son’s name, “Mother” steps into a world of unimaginable chaos and shocking revelations.

The “Mother” trailer can be watched now below.

Of course I’d stop at nothing. There is no price you can put on a wrongful conviction and wrongful imprisonment

No doubt...

There is no way that I would sit by idly while my child was being accused of something that I know they didn’t do.

I would stop at nothing to prove their innocence!

Nothing comes between the bond of parent & child.

First I would be quite surprised that I had a child. Once that shock wore off, I would indeed stop at nothing to prove the innocence of my child. And then I would stop at nothing to find the woman who was foolish enough to have a child with me. That would probably be the sequel.

Absolutey, of course, not doubt that I would stop at nothing in proving my child’s innocence.

  • Merry Widow, The

    CHICAGO – Standing up at the Lyric Opera house in Chicago is unusual before a show. But in this case, it was the night after a tragedy, and the operetta “The Merry Widow” – set in Paris, France, in 1905 – was about to unfold. The orchestra struck up La Marseillaise, a reminder that we’ll always have Paris.

  • Black White Love Play

    CHICAGO – The love story of a prominent Chicago celebrity couple becomes the basis for a metaphoric and tuneful celebration about courage and coming together. “The Black White Love Play: The Story of Chaz & Roger Ebert” – written and directed by Black Ensemble Theater’s Jackie Taylor – portrays the film critic and the civil rights lawyer in their time, but also creates an atmosphere of emotion through song, sorrow and jubilation.
