29 years old Jeong Bomin lives with his uncle Jeong Supyeong, who runs a boat dock on the outskirts. He still has resentment toward his father Jeong Munpyeong who left him, but Bomin forms a family bond with Supyeong and lives contentedly even though they are not well off. However, Bomin’s humble but happy life takes a new turn when two unexpected persons appear. Bomin is not fond of these undesirable two who make ripples on the water surface, but Supyeong accepts them. Demonstrating the process of creating an alternative family, the play discusses a new definition of a family in the 21st century, when the breakup of the family became a reality.
