Laurel Tree Tailor Shop is family-owned and has been in business for almost a century. Its master tailor, Lee Man Sool, has perfected the dying art of creating a made-to-measure suit.

Man Sool departs, only leaving a note to his wife with instructions to sell the old-fashioned shop as the business is no longer viable and he just does not have the heart to do it himself. His wife, son, and daughterare all taken aback by his decision. His former apprentice is devastated by the news of Man Sool’s disappearance and contemplates the idea of returning to the shop, which his wife forbids.

Family politics are at play when Dong Jin suddenly finds himself unseated as the president of his father-in-law’s company and his wife sues him for divorce. Dong Jin decides his best move is to return to his father’s tailor shop.

The seamstresses want to keep the shop open until their boss’s return, but one lady is unsure as she keeps having negative experiences with Dong Jin.

What will it take to save this beloved neighborhood shop?
