Inspiration is abundant in the town of Chilgok!
The grannies from rural Korean town Chilgok lived their entire lives illiterate in Korean. In 1937, during the Japanese colonisation, the usage and education of the Korean language was banned in all schools. Despite only knowing the multiplication table in Japanese, these grannies went through backbreaking labor to support the education of their own children.
One day a Korean school opens in their village, sparking a fire in their hearts. Dedicating their time and energy into becoming literate ladies, they begin to write poems about various topics from their days.
