Ae-sun, the vain wife of a middle-class man, has no interest in looking after her family. Her exasperated husband kicks her out, so she abandons her husband and her daughter Jeong-hui to stay in a hotel with her lover, Chang-geon. One day, she finds out that her lover is actually a criminal but not the rich entrepreneur she thought he was. Chang-geon robs the hotel, and Ae-sun reports it to the police. While fleeing to Busan, Ae-sun’s speeding cab accidentally runs over her own daughter Jeong-hee…
