Dong-chun is an elementary school student who attends seven afterschool academies. Loaded with homework, there’s even not enough time to ask why. One night, left alone at the hostel from a school trip, Dong-chun comes across a bottle of rice wine. Later, the rice wine starts fermenting and makes strange noise. Glub, glub-glub, glub-glub-glub-glub.
Soon, Dong-chun learns that this rhythmic sound resembles the Morse code, learnt in science class. What is the rice wine trying to say? Dong-chun’s mishaps grow out of control. Dong-chun, who goes after the identity of the rice wine, finally learns the answers to the secrets of the world, and why one must live the way one does.


The reason why elementary school students must learn, senior grade mathematics, Korean history, English, Chinese, Taekwondo, art, logical writing, and computer coding, cannot be just to get into university and get good jobs. This film searches for the answer.
