This schoolgirl returned home to her grandma’s request to attend to the laundry while she runs out for an errand.

There’s a worn piece of cloth that looks more like a rag than a blanket, and grandma has specific instructions for it. It’s the ‘podaegi’, a traditional baby carrier that was used in the family.

Grandma’s day out was cut short when she meets an accident, but she sends the grand-daughter home to attend to laundry as the weather looked like it would change.

And don’t forget the podaegi, grandma called after her.

It wasn’t just a piece of cloth, as she remembered. And as the rain pelted on the windowpanes, the schoolgirl held the warm blanket and basked in the memory of grandma’s love.
