This book dissects the issues of homosexuality and sexual minorities in Korean society from a mother's point of view. It shows the process in which a mother reaches the best understanding she can of her daughter by facing the problem of double standards within us.

한국 사회의 동성애, 성소수자 문제를 어머니의 관점에서 제시한다. 한국 사회의 이면에 자리잡은 이중잣대 문제를 직시하며 어머니가 딸에 대해 '최선의 이해'에 도달하는 과정을 보여준다.
