Park So-nyo, aged 69, visiting her grown-up children in Seoul, gets lost in the crowd and disappears without leaving a trace. The search leads far into the world of rural Korea.

Kyung-sook Shin’s novel “Please Look After Mom” was awarded the Asian Man Booker Prize and became a bestseller in the USA, Italy, Spain, and the Netherlands.
