Way Home, The

A spoiled little South Korean boy, Sang-Woo (Yu Seung-Ho), from the city is left for the summer in the care of his mute grandmother (Kim Eul-Bun) who lives up in the mountains. When his portable videogame's batteries run low, he takes off for the local village to get more, but he gets lost, not remembering... the way home. Over the course of the summer, the boy gets used to his grandmother, whom he once made fun of, calling her a "retard" (as well as hiding her shoes so she has to walk over sharp rocks barefoot), as he gets used to the simpler ways of life in the country, and learns the importance of love and respect for one's family and elders.
