Pil-Yong (Park Joong-Hoon) has been forever a lowly public official of 7th grade in Jeonju, South Korea.
3 years ago his wife Hyo-Kyung (Ye Ji-Won) collapsed of a cerebral infarction largely due to him. Pil-Yong took his
son to a relative and now takes care of his wife who has difficulty in moving. Pil-Yong wants to be promoted to a
deputy director in the higher 5th grade before he retires.
Pil-Yong finds out that his new boss is interested in hanji (traditional Korea paper). Because of this, Pil-Yong
transfers to the hanji department.
Meanwhile, documentary filmmaker Ji-Won (Kang Soo-Yeon) shoots a documentary about hanji. To make her documentary,
Ji-Won travels throughout the country. By chance, Ji-Won meets Pil-Yong and they do not get along with each other.
She learns that Pil-Yong plans to restore a copy of the annals of the Joseon Dynasty using hanji of a traditional
kind. Ji-Won joins Pil-Yong.
Pil-Yong becomes obsessed with his project. A strange mood starts to brew between Pil-Yong and Ji-Won. Hyo-Kyung
