When a woman loses her husband, she moves to his hometown with their little boy, and yet another accident happens to her that make blame herself and doubt her beliefs. But only one man stands by her and helps her get through her tragedy.
Milyang is about a mother trying to overcome the loss of her child. Aishiteru is about the same thing, but involves two mothers and their families. They are both about the pain after losing a child, and what mothers (and their families) have to endure while trying to face the cruel reality of their loss. And the cruelest thing of all: that you have to continue living, even after that loss.
