Jembatan Yeongdo dibuka kembali setelah 47 tahun. Namun, ada beberapa orang yang hidup di bawah jembatan tersebut yang berharap keadaan akan sama seperti sebelumnya. Mereka adalah: seorang tukang las pekerja kontrak, seorang wanita tua lumpuh yang tinggal dengan anjing tuanya, seorang penyelam wanita tua tunarungu yang mengumpulkan kerang dan rumput laut untuk bertahan hidup, serta dua nenek peramal. Mereka semua dipaksa untuk pindah dari tempat itu. Pemerintah berencana mengubah pulau itu jadi tujuan wisata. Tapi bagaimanapun, mereka tidak ingin meninggalkan rumah seumur hidup mereka itu meski terus ditekan.

They all are driven to move out. The government plans to turn the island into a tourist attraction.
