After losing everything and hitting rock bottom, Sam-dal returns to her hometown and seeks solace. It is a heartwarming and humorous drama that portrays characters who, despite becoming adults, remain delicate and inexperienced in life, providing healing and warm emotions.

However, in an unexpected turn of events, her hard-earned success crumbles in an instant. She returns to the river she once dreamed of escaping from and assumes her old name, Sam-dal.
