Based on an original by Kim Ae-ran, a story about a boy with progeria disease and his parents.

It is the story of the youngest parents and oldest child in the world... 16 year old boy, Ahreum has Progeria Syndrome, a rare genetic defect that will cause the baby to show rapid aging from an early age. Although Ahreum has struggled with the disease, he was raised as a brilliant young child more than anyone else. Young parents, Mi-ra (Song Hye-kyo) and Dae-soo (Kang Dong-won) are still in their early 30s who had Ahreum when they both were 17 years old, sometimes act immature but they never expressed their sorrow. Ahreum only has a few month to live, and Mi-ra and Dae-soo want to deny the reality. Although knowing that he does not have much time left, they appear on a fundraising TV show in hopes of raising enough money for his medical care. Ahreum's appearance on TV brings everyone's attention, and he becomes pen pals with a teenager girl who's also suffering from a disease watching the show. Exchanging letters with her becomes the joy of his days. But his body becomes more weary from aging, and he even loses his vision...
