Kids are Fine tells the story of nine-year-old Da-yi (LEE Kyung-hoo). While his ill mother is in the hospital and his father is absent due to work, Da-yi learns to be independent at a very young age. He spends most of his time at home alone or with his mother at the hospital. After Da-yi and his father move closer to the hospital, Da-yi transfers to a new school and meets new friends. One day, Da-yi’s mother is relocated to a hospital further away. He fears that he won’t be able to see his mother again, so he and his friends go on a journey to visit her.
