The sudden death of her mother brings Myeong-eun back home to Jeju island.  She meets her sister Myeong-ju and her daughter Seung-a, they are still living at their old home, and Hyeon-a who has lived with them for over 20 years like a relative. With the absence of her father, and her complex about being an illegitimate child, Myeong-eun tells Hyeon-a she will start looking for her father after the funeral. Myeong-ju accompanies her sister because of Hyeon-a’s persuasion and her sense of duty as an older sibling.
