Family Ties is an ensemble drama from Kim Tae Yong, the co-director of chiller Memento Mori. The film tells three seemingly unconnected stories in a trilogy of distinct segments. The first part is the story of a woman (Moon So Ri – Oasis, A Good Lawyer’s Wife)) who has to deal with her long-lost brother’s surprise visit. After having been missing for several years, the brother (played by Um Tae Ung – Revenge) appears and moves in, with his new wife in tow – a much older woman, Mu Shin (Ko Doo Sim – More Beautiful Than A Flower). The second story features a searing performance from Gong Hyo Jin (Memento Mori) as a short-tempered young woman, who discovers that her estranged mother (Kim Hye Ok), with whom she has had a falling out, is terminally ill. Part three examines the relationship problems faced by a young couple (Bong Tae Gyu from See You After School and Jeong Yu Mi from Blossom Again).
