The man receives a text message from his ex-girlfriend, Seung-yoon, and heads to the motel. At the motel, the man finds a baby that Seung-yoon left behind. Thinking that the baby is his own son, he names the baby ‘Lee Jun’ and raises him. While raising the baby, his co-workers tell him of seeing the child's mother in the neighborhood and tell him to visit her. The man visits the woman with baby 'Lee Jun'.


While having a drink with a friend in the small town of Yeongju, I witnessed how people with hearing disabilities, shared their joys and sorrows of the day at work, with sign language. Through their intense sign language, I learned the similarities between my life and theirs which I had not been aware of. ‘The man’ lives with certain deficiencies just because he’s not a person without disabilities. I wanted to capture the ordinary daily lives of the people with disabilities, still much erased from everyday lives.
