    Synopsis The mother of the painter Youngsoo is gravely ill. Youngsoo hears that his girlfriend Minjung drank with a man and fought with him. They argue that night, and Minjung goes out, saying they shouldn’t see each other for some time. The next day, Youngsoo looks for her, but can’t find her. Meanwhile, in Yeonnam where he lives, Minjung or some women who look identical to her go around meeting different men. Youngsoo wanders and fights with himself, which is the same as fighting with the world; while Minjung or the other women, resembling the image of her in his fears, wanders seeking the “good man” she’s never met. One day they meet again, stop fighting, and it’s so nice, it’s hard to believe.
