Zainichi Koreans Nam-su and Yeong-a attempt suicide as their parents disapprove of their marriage. After surviving the suicide attempt, they somehow manage to tie the knot and receive the blessing of their parents. The film follows the couple separating, reuniting, and getting married after being brought up in Korean families with different ideologies in Japan. By doing so, it sheds light on the second-generation Zainich Koreans and their deep-rooted struggles caused by the Division of Korea.
