Plot

After she gets off work, Yu-gyeong studies veterinary medicine at college at night. Yu-gyeong decides that she cannot live freely as someone who chooses not to marry in a patriarchal society, so she plans to go to Africa as a veterinarian. Cynically viewing the social conventions about marriage of her family members and people around her, she prepares for her life away from such conventions.
