Goo Baek, a young man operating a modest junk shop alongside his single mother, has his life upended in an inexplicable act of violence that tragically claims his mother’s life. Motivated by his own painful experience, Goo Baek embarks on a mission to assist individuals facing similar circumstances, having heard their stories through the radio.

Contemplating the best course of action to extend a helping hand, Goo Baek finds himself torn between two paths: one that adheres to the principles of justice and law, and the other that advocates for repaying violence with violence. With both options on the table, he presents his proposition to those seeking his aid.

Through a shared understanding of their mutual suffering, Goo Baek and these individuals forge an unbreakable bond, forming an unconventional yet supportive family. Together, they navigate their collective pain and strive to find solace amidst the complexities of their intertwined lives.
