A teenage girl, Young-hoo is irritated by her monthly visitor: menstruation. One day after her classmate Sang-woo helps her cover her blood-spotted skirt, Young-hoo develops a romantic interest in him. Meanwhile, afraid of menopause, Young-hoo’s mother collects her heart from her husband, and Young-hoo’s father experiences a kind of emotional menstruation as he endures monthly heartaches pining after a past lover.
