Along with her friend Chae-rang, Ji-so devises a plan to find a dog with a rich owner and steal it. All she needs to do is then return it by pretending to have found it and take the reward she assumes will be offered.
Kim Sung-ho’s heart-warming tale is adapted from Barbara O’Connor’s the best-selling novel of the same name.
