It's another hot humid summer in Seoul and a trip to the mountain and temples of Kangwon province could be just the thing to revive the spirit in the aftermath of a breakup. On the rebound from a love affair with Sang-kwon, her married university professor, Ji-sook joins two girlfriends on a trip to Kangwon province. Although Ji-sook is the only woman he's ever loved, Sang-kwon seems to have moved on and is now searching for a tenured position. His trip to Kangwon province coincides with Ji-sook's, and up in the mountains, they are brushed with the same tragedy. Both also have drunken spats with friends and indulge in joyless flirtations. Ji-sook meets a friendly policeman she later returns to visit and Sang-kwon, who has missed a rendezvous with a beautiful woman, ends up having unsatisfying sex with a prostitute. Ultimately, both leave Kangwon lonelier than ever.
