Despite her father’s scolds for her ‘un-lady’ like acts, Jung-Min, a tomboy, can’t stop herself from running in the green fields and chasing after butterflies. Her mother would whip her for coming home late, but at night she would comfort Jung-min’s bruises and gently whisper delightful stories to her ear. The next morning, along with a myeon officer, came a policeman with an armband on his forearm. And without any explanation, they begin to drag Jung-Min away from her home.
