Directed by Eon-hie Lee, Missing is a 2016 thriller that revolves around the abduction of an infant. Struggling PR worker and recent divorcee Ji-sun, balances both her job and motherhood with difficulty. Her young daughter Da-eun spends most of the day and night with hired nanny, Han-mae. Han-mae effortlessly bonds with Da-eun to a scarily maternal point and one day, disappears with Ji-sun’s child.

The messy divorce case and the ordeal with custody is in the back of Ji-sun’s mind as she takes it upon herself to track down Han-mae and rescue her daughter. She is aware of her position in the case as a mother who “neglects” her child to work and leaves her in the hands of a nanny for most of the time and feels like this would be nail in the coffin to prove her as unfit for custody.
