Kim Min-chul, who just got out of prison, comes back to his hometown, Wolchu-li. His overzealous and violent tendency makes people afraid of or angry at him. Wolchu-li will soon be flooded by the new dam. Villagers are anxious about moving from their home to another village or city. Choi Kyung-seok is an outsider who won the favor of the residents by solving problems about flood compensation. Choi wants to build a pioneer church, and the villagers are eager to show their commitment to Choi. Kim, who has suspicion on Choi since the first meeting, doubts everything Choi does. Villagers accuse him of attacking the village’s benefactor, but that can’t stop him. As he persistently approaches the truth, a plot lurking behind Choi’s smile also gradually emerges.
