 Winner of Best Film and Best Screenplay at the 34th Blue Dragon Film Awards, Lee Joon Ik's heartwrenching drama Hope (a.k.a. Wish) portrays how a family copes after the young daughter is sexually assaulted. The powerful, emotionally draining story sensitively follows the victim, the parents and the community's grief, struggle and healing in the aftermath of shocking tragedy, shining light and humanity on a family's darkest hours. Sol Kyung Gu and Uhm Ji Won play the devastated parents who must face their worst nightmare and piece their family back together, while child actress Lee Re breaks hearts as the precocious So Won, whose name means Hope.

 On her way to school in a quiet rural town, eight-year-old So Won (Lee Re) gets abducted, then raped and beaten. The physical damage to her body is so severe that she will never be able to fully recover. Shocked and devastated, So Won's parents Dong Hoon (Sol Kyung Gu) and Mi Hee (Uhm Ji Won) try their best to help their daughter recover physically and psychologically and to seek justice against the perpetrator. But to do so, So Won must recount her abuse again and again. Day by day, this family of three must cope and heal, and somehow find a way back to hope and normalcy.
