1. the father had asked him to come but he was occupied when he came
2. she wanted to study in germany and her mother had to find cheap lodging
3. he went to see his mother at a beach restaurant and she was with an old actor
Yeong-ho is summoned by his father, who is a doctor. Finding him busy with his patients, one of whom is a famous actor, Yeong-ho has to wait. When his girlfriend Juwon moves to Berlin for her studies, Yeong-ho shows up in the city to surprise her. Through her mother, Juwon has found accommodation at the home of an artist whose beauty intimidates her. Some time later, Yeong-ho goes to lunch with his mother who wants to introduce him to a colleague - it is the same man Yeong-ho met at his father's clinic. Yeong-ho asks his friend Jeong-soo to accompany him, and after lunch they go to the beach. Yeong-ho falls asleep, and dreams of Juwon. When he wakes up, he braves the considerable cold and goes swimming, while Jeong-soo watches.
For the second year in a row, Hong Sang-soo returns to the Berlinale's Competition with a film akin to the art of the aphorism: a poetic, philosophical gem. Two mothers attempt to introduce their children to life, but their offspring have decided to write their own introduction. That's life, and, like all masters imbued with wisdom and wit, Hong appears to be speaking through the old actor when the latter tells Yeong-ho, "However small, there's nothing but good!"
