This is the story of a deaf mute who is laid off, and his sister, who requires a kidney transplant. He has the wrong blood type to be able to donate one of his kidneys, so he arranges a trade with a group of organ dealers: one of his kidneys, and 10 million won, in return for their finding a kidney for his sister. They renege, but a legitimate kidney becomes available for transplant. Unfortunately, he no longer has the 10 million won required for the hospital to perform the operation. He and his girlfriend, a terrorist seeking to change how the poor are treated in Korea, kidnap his former boss’s daughter. She is a very sweet girl, and they get along quite well with her. The sister kills herself when she finds out there is no money to pay for her transplant, and while he is burying her body near the stream they used to play in, the daughter accidentally drowns. The balance of the movie shows the revenge of the various wronged parties.
