My Love! Torami (Korean) 2005

My Love! Torami (Korean) 2005

Synopsis / Plot
Love, Caring, and Loyalty

This movie is based on a true story about the first blind woman in Korea to receive a guide dog and about the turmoil family life she had created after she lost her sight by an accident.

Trying to be an independent person and not wanting to be a nuisance to the family because of her blindness, she decided to move to Seoul to pursue her study/research as a blind woman in a university all by herself.

She found out that being blind and living alone were such a tough life. One day, just when she was on the verge of giving up, a dog called Toram came to her. Apparently, Toram used to live with her family temporarily when he was just a little puppy.

Toram’s arrival wasn’t really a coincident. Her husband, who never one second of his life abandons her, asked his friend (without her knowledge) who apparently worked for a guide-dog organisation for the blinds to offer Toram as her guide dog.

With having Toram by her side, her confidence was rapidly grown. Now she has a big task to mend the turmoil family life she created, especially by gaining the trust of her son again.
