A simple labourer in a remote mountain village is driven to desperate measures to provide for the women in his life in this wrenching yet beautiful drama.
Work, earn a salary, live off that money. This simple postulate has always been a problem for Jungchul, who works at a soybean paste factory. During the winter, he fantasizes about traveling to the Philippines in spring, where the weather is mild and life is easier. The only thing he has to do to reach his dream and leave is to achieve the soybean paste quota he promised his boss, but soon the fermentation room turns musty and black mold starts spreading from the thousands of fermented soybean lumps.
