Simple, sweet-natured farmhand Seok-Jung (Hwang Jung-Min) longs for a wife. He is certain that he has found her the instant he catches sight of lovely Eun-Ha (Jeon Do-Youn). She is far more experienced and sophisticated than he is, a difference made starkly clear by her job at a sleazy café where she delivers intimacy and coffee to the guests at the aptly named Beast Motel. No one is more surprised than she is when his unquestioning devotion wins her over, and she falls for her impassioned suitor. Seok-Jung thinks he has found the perfect love, but Eun-Ha is a woman with a past that has resulted in an HIV infection, and her former life casts a shadow that threatens not just their marriage but also his place within his family and community.
