Now they're 33 and have a 16-year old son Ahreum. Due to an extremely rare genetic disorder called progeria, Ahreum ages exponentially faster than normal people. Even though he's just a teenager, his body is that of an 80-year old man's. Despite all the negativity and hardships in their lives, this tight-knit young family carries on, taking one day at a time. One day, Ahreum's story is broadcasted nationally via network TV program. He is suddenly thrown into the spotlight, and his normally dull days are now filled with moments of happiness, joy and sorrow?
