In the dark ‘80s, Sang-ho is wanted by the authorities for participating in the student movement. He ends up in a town he has no connections to, hiding on the second floor of a worn down wooden house. One day, he discovers a hole looking into the room downstairs, and he happens to see Hee-ran. Every gesture she makes is captivating and seductive. He watches her body, feels her, and takes her into his heart. She lives a confined life, like Sang-ho. Her husband locks the door from the outside when he goes to work. Then, one day, he drops his keys on his way out. Sang-ho hesitates before he uses them to go in, but when he does, he sees her lying face down in the same position she usually is in while engaged in sex with her husband. Sang-ho approaches her. He caresses her the same way her husband does, and she receives him out of habit. Then one day, he does not caress her like he usually does. Thinking it strange, Hee-ran turns around. The gaze of the two crisscross heatedly. Sang-ho guiltily hangs his head when Hee-ran strokes his face tenderly. They share a powerful and passionate kiss…
