In-su heads for Samcheok upon hearing the news of his wife' Su-jin's car accident. As his wife undergoes an operation along with Kyung-ho who was also in the accident with her, there he meets Kyung-ho's wife Seo-young. While Su-jin and Kyung-ho struggle to gain back consciousness due to serious injuries, In-su and Seo-young find out their respective spouses had an extramarital affair together. The trusted love changes into confusion, anger, and feelings of betrayal and heartache. In-su and Seo-young start their long-term stay at a local motel to be by the side of their spouses. As the two pass each other by often at the motel and the hospital and spend more time with each other, they realize that they share the same kind of sadness and pain.
A very beautiful love story avoiding the commonplaces of melodrama and tactfully focusing on the intimate tragedy of the characters with great sensibility.
