    • Synopsis
    • Unemployed Korean girl, Yeona, feels awkward staying at her mother's place, and travels to Fukui prefecture in Japan on a working holiday. Her job was supposed to assist in making traditional Echizen Japanese paper, but the craftsman, Takeo, has fallen ill with brain cancer, and she ends up caring for him. Takeo has lived alone since his wife died without opening up to anyone, and he keeps spitting out prejudiced curses. Strong-willed Yeona unflinchingly faces up to Takeo despite little understanding of the language, and over time unexpected changes occur in Takeo's mind.
