By accident, Hee Joo becomes close with Young Nam’s daughter Eun Young and learnsa new fact about the incident. The true nature of this accident, where Hee Joo’s husband was known to have crossed over the centerline, is actually very complicated. Since the social issues of dispatched labor and industrial accidents and personal issues of depression and family trouble are intertwined here, it is more difficult to apprehend.
