In 1945, right after liberation, Jangchun, a large city in the Manchuria called Gingyeong until liberation, is full of war-displaced people of all nationalities, including Koreans, Japanese, and Chinese. Among numerous war-displaced shelters, Shelter No. 78 for Korean war-displaced people where Sook-hee, who was born in 1937 and speaks fluent Japanese, and Deok-ee, who was born in 1937, are staying. The shelter is already full of Koreans who have gathered there to return to an independent Choson(Joseon). They are struggling day by day to survive poverty, epidemic, and someone's death, where waiting turns into unbearable time. Myeong-suk, a Korean who came from faraway Qiqihar to catch a return train to Choson(Joseon), and Mizuko, a Japanese, who came to wait for the train that does not come, also arrive here, the shelter for Korean war-displaced people.
