Jargal, a young Mongolian lady with a lot of dreams, married Deokgu, an old bachelor who works at Jagalchi Market in Busan. Jargal means ‘'happiness' in Mongolian. Jargal, who dreams of a happy life just like the meaning of her name, lives and works hard while taking care of her husband and selling fish at her husband’s fish shop. Meanwhile, Park Boknyeo, a trouble maker at Jagalchi Market, comes to Jargal and throws a tantrum for a free fish. Boknyeo is insisting but Jargal turns her down to give Boknyeo fish for free, so they have a fight and their relationship sours. However, one day when Boknyeo finds Jargal helplessly crying after being beaten by drunk Deokgu, she couldn’t help but bring Jargal to her house. The Story of Boknyeo of Theater Company Odyssey touches the audience deeply as recalling the meaning and true happiness of being together through the meeting of two women who go through twists and turns but in the end heal each other’s wounded hearts.
