Bong-soo (Kim Seung-ho-I) is a nave farmer. Although he works as hard as possible, he never gets to be better off. He even postpones his daughter Soon-i's marriage. Yeong-ho (Kim Jin-kyu), a son who comes home from military service, is in love with Ok-kyeong (Choi Eun-hee). She has grown up at Bong-soo's, and works at the bar of Eok-jo's wife (Hwang Jung-soon). Poverty-stricken, Bong-soo is cajoled by Eok-jo, an usurer, into selling cattle and starts a used goods business to make money. But he is deprived of his money by a swindler (No Gyeong-hui) and his group in Seoul. One night Bong-soo picks up some money Eok-jo drops while he is trying to rape Ok-kyeong. While Bong-soo fights with Eok-jo, he kills him by accident. Ok-kyeong picks up the money, and gives some to Yeong-ho. With that money Ok-kyeong and Yeong-ho are about to be off to Seoul, but are caught by the police who are investigating Eok-jo's murder case. Convinced that they are murderers, the police put them in custody and send them to the police station by train. Bong-soo follows the departing train, crying out that he is the murderer and that it should be him who should be arrested.
