Director Mipo Oh (The Light Shines Only There) returns with another masterfully directed film that is both heart wrenching and heart-warming. With Being Good, she shows us how a simple act of kindness can blossom and make a difference in someone’s life, teaching us about love by showing us where it’s missing.

We follow the lives of three characters in a non-descript town: Okano is a newly-graduated primary school teacher struggling with his students, Akiko is an aged woman living alone, and Masami is an abusive mother hiding a dark past. How could a simple act of kindness transform their lives?
