Synopsis

Unemployed Kim Ki-taek lives with his wife Chung-sook, son Ki-woo and daughter Ki-jeong in a shabby semi-basement apartment, where they struggle to make ends meet. When Ki-woo is hired by the wealthy and glamorous Park family to be a tutor to their young daughter, he learns of Mrs. Park's struggle to find an art teacher for her younger child, Da-song (Hyun-jun Jung), and suggests a "professional" named Jessica, who in reality is his sister Ki-jeong. Once hired, Ki-jeong gets Mr. Park's driver fired and replaced with her "Uncle Kim" - her father Ki-taek. Finally, the Kims get housekeeper Moon-gwang fired, with Choong-sook hired in her place, so that the whole Kim family is now hired by the Parks, without the latter realising. But maintaining the deception proves difficult, particularly when one evening the former housekeeper Moon-gwang returns, claiming that she needs to retrieve something she left in the basement...
