Dong-Kyu is a disabled man who lives on society’s fringe, unable to cope with the disapprovals of those who stare at his damaged hand. As an 11-year-old boy, he was bullied because of his handicap and rode his bicycle alone. Aware of his struggle, his loving father often took him to the zoo to show him the elephants, which didn’t have any hand but could do anything. Dong-Kyu is now a grown man, working in a zoo taking care of an elephant. He is introduced to his girlfriend’s parents but rejected. While his ego is hurt, his father gets into a car accident, which makes him realize that it was his father’s love that kept him strong in the face of reality.
