Parasite

Meet the Park family, the picture of aspirational wealth, and the Kim Family, rich in street-smarts, but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity: masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist to the Parks.
