Very thought provoking drama. Give it a chance!

The lead actress is such an amazing veteran actress and she once again delivered.
The subject at hand is quite sad imo ( that's why I gave the rewatch value a low score) and makes you think about our humanity in this world. Give it a chance. Great story, music score and wonderfully executed. I loved the plot, the supporting cast and it's well directed. 1 of the best in its genre; very thought of provoking as well. Dramas like these should be more well known rather than far less great dramas which are rated highly mostly because of a famous cast.
