Kim Kyung Ju then finds a passport to his friend’s house. Unfortunately, Kyung Ju’s friend is not at home, but she allows Kyung Ju to find her passport while asking her to be careful because there are guests there. A guest named Se Ran also turned Kyung Ju’s life upside down.

There is no movie or TV series quite like The Handmaid (2016). It’s a masterpiece that would become legend for a similar film.

However, if the twisted plot about Hideko and Tamako leaves you in awe, especially about the two women daring to do something for their freedom, the film above could be an option.
