Dong-woo is ashamed that his mother is Chinese because his close friends, Jun-gil and In-ho hate Chinese people. Dong-woo, who wants to get along with his friends, hides the fact that his mother is Chinese. Then one day, the three friends go to a factory, run by Inho’s uncle, for a daily part-time job. While working with friends, Dong-woo runs across his mother unexpectedly. Frustrated, Dong-woo deliberately ignores his mother.
