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.
