Ho-jung and her husband Yeong-jak have made a comfortable home with their adopted seven-year-old. However, their marriage is shallow and passionless, so they begin affairs with others: she with an awkward boy-next-door; he with a young photographer. But this doesn’t help either to overcome their lack of fulfillment. Meanwhile, Yeong-jak’s father nears death, but his mother is already seeing another man. Ho-jung and Yeong-jak eventually realize just how disconnected they’ve become when the latter lands them in a tragic situation, forcing them to rethink their lives. With each development, this incisive, sexually frank drama suggests that the Korean nuclear family no longer sustains its members and, if they are to truly live, they must leave it behind and start afresh.
