Snowy Road (Bilingual)


A poignant, radiant tale of a mother’s ceaseless devotion to her son, The Snowy Road (Bilingual) is the story of a family that loses everything due to one son’s abuse of alcohol. This tragedy does not shake the mother’s resolve to continue to work hard for her one remaining son, making his happiness her sole goal in life. The son behaves contemptuously, though, oblivious to his mother’s sacrifice, until the day he learns of her long walk home along a snowy mountain road years before when he left home.
