Normal is relative. A father, taking care of the 19-year-old handicapped son who declares his independence. He can´t take nor turn down his son who wants to live like a normal person for at least one day.
MY SON, based on the play Kill Me Now, which has been staged in Korea, deals with important social issues, including support for the disabled, the issue of sexuality for the disabled, and even euthanasia. Of course, these issues that we have to consider not only a social system but also philosophical concerns are not the subject of the film. MY SON asks what a father and son can be for each other even in an increasingly serious situation. The film revolves around a father who gave up even the writer´s dream to care for his son and a son who is worried about his own situation due to his father suddenly becoming sick. In addition, the father´s younger sister, his lover, and his son´s social worker tell the story of each and bring the film to life. Jang Hyun-sung, who played the father, was nominated for Best Actor at the Milan International Film Festival. (MOON Seok)
