Synopsis

In a small seaside village, where all the young men have left for the city, three young women, Jae-hwa, Yoo-ja, and Mi-ja hope to catch the eye of Joon-seob, the only eligible bachelor left in town. Jae-hwa has plans to make her family prosperous by raising pigs, but the endeavour is more difficult than she imagined: the pigs keep wandering away. They roam the town and every now and then get stuck in a rut. A rumour spreads that Jae-hwa’s mother is having an affair. Not that it matters to her father, who is generally drunk, or to her younger brother, who keeps getting into fights. Joon-seob, who has stood by Jae-hwa despite her family’s stream of misfortunes finally take his relationship with Jae-hwa to another level, and they begin dating. But Yoo-ja and Mi-ja aren’t about to give up. They begin to scheme...
