Greed and class discrimination threatens a newly formed symbiotic relationship between the unaware and wealthy Park family and the destitute Kim family.

Kim Ki-taek (Song Kang-ho) is the patriarch of the Kim family. He is poor, jobless and yet, unmotivated. The rest of the family seem to be okay bumbling along on minimum wage, until Ki-woo, the elder son, has an opportunity that could free them from their squalor. 

He approaches the Parks, in the hopes of becoming a tutor to their young son. Once he is successful, slowly each member of the Kims starts working at the Parks, behaving as strangers to each other.

Once this set-up is established, the differences and discriminations creep in, resulting in an explosive confrontation.
