Veteran Novelist Junhee (Lee Hyeyoung, In Front of Your Face), has lost her inspiration. She makes a daytrip to a small town where she visits a former colleague and bookstore owner, and this leads to chance encounters – first, a filmmaker who has failed to adapt one of her books, and then actress Kilsoo (luminous Kim Minhee) who is also questioning her role as an artist. Feeling inspired Junhee wants to make a short film with Kilsoo.
