Yeon-soo happens to meet Chang-jo because of a hit-and-run accident and becomes friends with him by helping him search for his mother, who ran away from home. As she becomes exhausted by the people around her, Yeon-soo comes to understand the reason why Chang-jo’s mother left and persuades him to abandon his search. Chang-jo can’t completely give up hope, but he eventually learns how to live as a humanbeing and how to endure life’s troubles. (Billy Choi)
