Jinhae-na, une petite fille géniale de 9 ans qui s'est brisée le corps et l'esprit à cause d'annulations répétées d'adoption. Le soir de Noël, la première année de l'adoption, les parents d'accueil se suicident, laissant Hannah avec des excuses sans signification. La seule chose qui restait à Hanna était le chemin du retour vers l'institution d'adoption, mais elle a décidé de vivre seule avec la mort des parents adoptifs en secret.

Mais l'âge de neuf ans, qui requiert le consentement et les soins du tuteur. Hannah engage la policière Joo, qui a l'habitude d'administrer illégalement du propofol, comme mère intérimaire.

(English) The Abandoned

Please be my guardian for 2.8 million won a month
Yeogyeong, who is released on parole, is offered the role of a substitute mother and guardian by an impertinent nine-year-old Hae-na who is suffering from juvenile diabetes. She does not understand why but Hae-na must leave South Korea before winter is over. Although they develop a warm rapport, they do not probe into each other’s life but carry out each other’s role faithfully.

Repeated ten-minute silent harassing phone calls and death of the mother
Yeo-gyeong keeps getting calls from a person with a blocked caller ID and who remains silent for ten minutes then hangs up. Then one day, she gets a message that has to do with her mother’s death. She probes into the identity of the anonymous caller and finds out she and Hae-na are linked somehow. What could be the connection between nine-year-old Hae-na who address her as mom, auntie, and elder sister and Yeo-gyeong’s mother who abandoned her and was discovered dead from drug addiction nine years later in a luxury hotel?

Desire turns him from a guardian to surveillant
Meanwhile, Chang-su, the probation officer, finds out about Yu-gyeong’s job as a substitute mother for Hae-na and while keeping an eye on both of them, he finds out Haena lives alone in a big mansion in the outskirts of Seoul and that there is a big bag filled with cash inside the house.
Severely strapped for money, Chang-su hesitates at first but decides to visit the house where Hae-na lives alone.

The child does not want to belong to anyone so she will not be deserted
The infant Hae-na was delivered to the orphanage alongside take-out Chinese food. She underwent the terrible experience of being abandoned by her adoptive parents twice. And the third time, her happiness lasted only briefly when her parents departed from her despite her frantic struggle to win their love. Desperate not to be deserted, Hae-na conceals the deaths of her adoptive parents, and a secret hidden away in the mansion but the spring is already about to come. Aided by Yeo-gyeong, Hae-na wants to leave South Korea as soon as possible…
