Huijun comes back home from Japan after finishing his studies, and he is surprised by the changes that have taken place in his hometown, where farms have disappeared and, in their place, factories have been built. There is a conflict between tenant farmers and An Seunghwak, the overseer who abuses his power. Huijun’s friends—Deoksam and Chunsik—leave their hometown, but Huijun stays and opens a night school for the townspeople. When An Seunghwak tries to marry off his daughter Gapsuk to someone rich, she leaves home and gets a job working at a factory. She tries to form a union in the factory, and she becomes drawn to Huijun.
