Yun-young is an amateur poet who has yet to taste success. He also has an ambiguous relationship with his elder classmate’s ex-wife, Song-hyun. One day, they impulsively decide to visit the birthplace of Yun-young’s mother in a small port city called Gunsan. Here, they live in a Bed & Breakfast managed by a Korean man who was born and raised in Japan. He and his daughter stir up their curiosity. Through conversation and shared experiences, Song-hyun develops subtle, tender feelings for the manager of the B&B. In the meantime, Yun-young and the manager’s daughter begin to explore each other’s past in silence…
When Yun-young goes back home, he encounters his conservative father, his Korean- Chinese housemaid, and a beautiful pharmacist. He experiences a feeling of déjà vu about these interactions. For him, the city of Gunsan is as much of a destination as the beginning of a new journey.
