Yeong-bok sets off for Seoul, leaving behind his aged mother and younger sister to keep home. He gets a job as a luggage carrier when he meets Kye-soon, a struggling young woman who barely manages to support her sick father and younger brother. After Yeong-bok’s mother passes away, his sister, Yeong-ok leaves home in search of Yeong-bok only to become a waitress and to make matters worse, lose her virginity to Gae-cheol. Tragedy also hits Kye-soon who falls prey to Gae-cheol while looking for a job. Eventually learning about Yeong-ok and Kye-soon’s misfortune, he goes after Gae-cheol and his gang in pursuit for justice. This 1934 piece directed by Ahn Jong-hwa preserves the techniques of the silent film at a time when Korean cinema was in transition from the silent cinema to sound cinema.
