In case you’re wondering where I’ve been the last two weeks, well, a video game currently owns my soul. I’ll get back to kdramas soon, I’m sure. In the meantime, there’s a new family drama airing this weekend,. If you’re up for sisterhood and grief and healing, this might be the thing for you.

One tragic day brings together three women from different stages of life. Kang Ha-ri, a part-time stationery store and nail salon worker, loses her brother in a tragic car accident; Min Deul-re, an actress whose popularity is on the decline, loses her mother; and Kim Eun-hyang, a secretary-turned-housewife, loses her young daughter. The deaths of their loved ones are devastating, but as the three of them are drawn to one another’s lives, their mutual friendship, love, and support help them cope with their grief.
