In Innocence, young lawyer Jung-in (Shin Hye-sun) travels from Seoul to her backwater birthplace after the family she left behind is implicated in a murder. Trying to defend her mother in a murder trial, she is frustrated at every turn by local authorities, who seem strangely reluctant to pursue leads that might clear her mother's name.
