Anna and Marie, two women can love each other. Marie has completely new feeling about love. And Anna enjoys the addiction from Marie, this gentle, soft girl that seems to love everything on her. But there is Zoe the girl friend of Anna how is the home since years for Anna.
Like a strange spring breeze, an emotion fluttering with love comes to Anna. Because Marie, a colleague at the bar, approaches her. The infatuation that each woman has for the other rocks on the melody of the piano they play together. As she feels confidence in her new adventure, Marie leaves her boyfriend and rushes headlong into her relationship with Anna without a stop, as if boundaries between being heterosexual or homosexual do not matter to her. But it is not easy for Anna who has maintained a long-term relationship with a woman named Zoe. Anna may have to endure too much; and it may be too much effort for her to stay attached to Marie who has no prior lesbian experience. Unlike Marie who left everything she had, Anna has difficulty in crossing a line which still surrounds her. Sometimes emotion is not clear; everything is not answerable in the name of love; any new emotional challenge can be accompanied by fear. (HONG So-in)
