SynopsisEdit

Yoon Bok-hee has accomplished a lot in her life, working her way up from running a money-lending market stand to managing millions. But her priorities shift when she's faced with a diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimer's. Her degenerative disease threatens her ability to manage her business and eventually the details of her daily life.

After receiving her diagnosis, she realizes that her most important goal is helping her children to grow up in a hurry. She must teach them how to run the family business and they must also learn how to care for her when she can no longer care for herself. It won't be easy as they still have a lot of growing up to do.[3]
