The sisters spend their summer break with their busy uncle, in a small loft, while their parents are working at a big construction site. Between her workaholic mom, black-sheep dad, and rebellious brother, Hana struggles to rebuild her family relationship, only to find the situation getting worse.

By providing emotional support to each other, Hana, Yoomi and Yoojin try even harder to save their homes. Unfortunately, however, Hana overhears news about her parents’ divorce, and Yoomi ends up receiving an eviction notice, leading them to inadvertently leave their home in search of Yoomi and Yoojin’s parents.
