Synopsis: MIRACLE MILE is a neon sign that stands on a strip of road separating Koreatown from Beverly Hills. For JAMES and JIYOUNG, it represents a potential for hope in the lonely desolate city of Los Angeles. When James happens to meet Jiyoung at the airport, she enlists his help to find her brother, who was sent to America 20 years earlier for adoption. As they search, James remembers his own childhood as an adopted child. He begins to hope and believe that he is the one she is looking for. Through their journey, the two strangers realize that they’ve discovered a sense of family in each other.
