Synopsis of the film Miracle Cell in No. 7 Korea
Quoted from Tribun Wiki, the film Miracle Cell in No. 7 Korea tells the story of Yong-Goo, a father who suffers from mental disabilities.
Yong-Goo is a father who loves his daughter very much. However, Yong-Goo is accused of a crime for which he must be sent to prison. His daughter, Ye-Seung, who is a law school student, also proves that her father did not commit the crime he accused of.
Back in 1997, Yong-Goo was still living a normal life with Ye-Seung when he was little. They also go to a shop every day to see the yellow Sailor Moon backpack that Ye-Seung really wants.
Once upon a time, the two noticed the last of the Sailor Moon backpacks being sold. Yong-Goo enters the shop and begs the buyer to give him the bag. However, the father who bought the bag slapped Yong-Goo instead. The next day, the girl who bought the backpack sees Yong-Goo working in the grocery store parking lot.
He tells Yong-Goo that there is another shop that sells the same bag. Yong-Goo then follows the girl to a traditional outdoor market. However, soon the girl lay unconscious on the ground. Yong-Goo then tries to do CPR.
Just then, a woman was walking by, and she called the police. Yong-Goo also accused of kidnapping and murder.
The father of the girl who died was the head of the National Police Agency. Yong-Goo then sentenced to death and imprisoned. He also shares a prison cell with five other inmates.
One day, Yong-Goo saves the life of his cellmate, So Yang-Ho, from the leader of a rival prison gang. So Yang-Ho then offered to help Yong-Goo in any way as a form of return.
