Lured by an arm wrestling tournament in Korea and Jin Ki’s scheme to make a fortune from it, Mark comes back to his native countryfor the first time in 30 years. When he arrives, Jin Ki gives him his biological mother’s address. Hesitant at first, he visits the address and gets united with a sister he didn’t know existed, and embraced by a new family, he prepares himself to make a mark on the tournament.
