Film director Gong is getting ready to make a movie about a female mountaineer Cho-seon, who climbs Nanga Parbat, which has a sheer 4,500-meter foot wall. Like the main character who spend the night hanging from an ice wall, Gong’s project suddenly comes to a halt. Meanwhile, his cat Luca dies during an operation and he heads to a mountain to find his cat’s grave. During his journey, he meets a woman who came to find him. It turns out that she is Cho-seon, whom he tried to make a movie with but failed. Cho-seon who wants to be a movie character again struggle over Gong, and eventually falls down a cliff. Gong returns to reality, and moves on to his new scenario. One day, he goes to the service center where he met Cho-seon for the first time 6 years ago, and there he meets a woman.


What is the end of the movie for the director who is also a creator of the film. This film was first conceived from the pain of a mountaineer who spends the night alone on a tall mountain. Meanwhile, the characters were created based on a image of roots in pain that are revealed when a 40-year-old tree in the streets is cut down.
