His first son Soo-eob (Shin Young-kyun) studies for a higher civil service examination and his first daughter (Jo Mi-ryeong) is a mute who is married but often sent home. His second son does nothing but fight all the time and his youngest daughter Ok-hee (Um Aing-ran) is discontent about her poor family and dreams of a better life through marriage. A woman from Suwon (Hwang Jung-soon) works as a housekeeper of the coach owner (Ju Seon-tae) and helps the poor coachman Choon-sam in every way she can. There is an air of romance between the two.

When their father gets into the accident, Soo-eob begins to pull the cart himself for his father and when the coach owner decides to sell the horse, the woman from Suwon buys the horse with the money she has saved her whole life and returns the horse to the coachman. Finally, Soo-eob passes the civil service exam and on that very day, Choon-sam and he woman from Suwon get engaged.
