Meet the Park Family, the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but nothing else. These two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity, The Kim children install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide indispensable luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims comfort, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, and destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks, but it turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching.
