Yeon Seok, a student in his final year at university, finds a woman lying on the side of the road. He helps her get home. To show her gratitude, she invites him in for dinner. The woman, a paraplegic, is called Josee. She lives alone with her grandmother, has a unique sensibility, her own worldview, and learns what she can from books. Josee’s personality appeals to Yeon Seok.
Yeon Seok starts to call on Josee, slowly learning about her past, about the loss of her parents, how she ran away from a children’s home, how she was taken in by her grandmother, and how she retreated into her own shell. The more he learns, the more infatuated he becomes, propelling him to ask a female university friend to help her gain city subsidies to renovate her accommodation. However, Josee suspects that Yeon Seok and the woman are more than friends, causing her to push him away…
