Soo-ok's first post is at an elementary school at a mountain village. In tattered rags, Kkae-cheol stands at the village entrance with a strange glint in his eyes. There is something frightening about him. Kkae-cheol is a stranger in the village. One day, Hwa-chun beats Kkae-cheol up saying that he's rape his wife. All the villagers say that Kkae-cheol is impotent. Soo-ok goes to greet her fiancee one day. When he doesn't come, Soo-ok returns disheartened. She goes into an oil warehouse to escape the rain. There, Soo-ok is drawn to Kkae-cheol and they make love. The villagers completely ignore Kkae-cheol and his presence is hardly felt in the village. The day Soo-ok leaves, a newly appointed female teacher arrives, seeing the brightly lit eyes of Kkae-cheol.
