Living in a whores' village Yeong-sik (Kim Hak) and his company rob US military warehouses of goods and sell them on the black market. His younger brother Dong-sik (Jo Hae-won) comes up to Seoul to look for him. Running into his brother at a market, Yeong-sik takes him into the village. Dong-sik asks Yeong-sik to go down to their hometown where their mother awaits them, but Yeong-sik tells him to go ahead on his own. Yeong-sik proposes to Sonya (Choi Eun-hee) to go home with him and marry him once he had made his fortune. Meanwhile Sonya seduces Dong-sik one night at a dance party while Yeong-sik and his company are stealing goods. Sonya and Dong-sik have a good time by the riverside.
