Off the train in the middle of winter at the station in Seoul, Bong-gu and his mother bring a little spring time warmth to the capital. They're from a poor, isolated area on the beautiful sea. She's looking for her kid's dad, who left without a trace. An old man meets the kid and actually remembers seeing his dad. Dad had dreams coming from the country, hitting the big city. They didn't quite work out. He had become too ashamed to show himself again. But the hope and love of humanity can even melt the cold indifference of our urban societies.
