After failing her college graduation exam in Seoul, Hye-won (The Handmaiden’s Kim Tae-ri) returns to her rural hometown with many unresolved questions in mind. Over four seasons, she grows and harvests her own ingredients, reconnects with friends and prepares hearty meals that awaken memories of the mother (Moon So-ri, Oasis) who left her.
Known for integrating social and humanist themes into box office hits like The Whistleblower and Forever the Moment, Yim Soon-rye adapts the Japanese manga Little Forest into a healing journey and organic feast filled with stunning shots of artfully arranged comfort food and the Korean countryside. Named one of the 11 Best Films of the Year by the Korean Association of Film Critics, this wonderfully therapeutic drama about farming, cooking and self-discovery not only provides respite for the hardy heroine, but also mouthwatering recipes for the audience!
