Plot: Romeo and Juliet, Jack and Rose, your parents - all the greatest love stories begin when a man meets a woman. Can love conquer all?
On her first day at work, Mei, an innocent young office clerk, meets her new boss John, a timid but gentle middle- aged man. Reminding her of a past loved one, Mei discovers she has growing feelings for John, and before long they are married. But tragedy strikes when John unexpectedly passes away on their honeymoon, leaving Mei in possession of all of John’s belongings... including his son Ken, a recluse in his late 20s. As attraction grows between these two confused adults- one handsome but socially impaired, the other beautiful but burdened with the duties of a stepmother - can these two star-crossed individuals overcome all obstacles to give this new love a chance to blossom?
MY CUTE MOM is based on the original Japanese manga "Love Laughs at Locksmiths" by Hiroya Oku and published by Shueisha Inc. Acquisition of movie rights remains to be determined.
