His relationship with his girlfriend (Kim So-hee), also a teacher, seems to be hitting a rough patch, so they decide to take a trip across the country to visit her family and get a change of scenery. As they travel by train and bus, the professor discovers that he's been given approval to make his film, but he decides against the project at the last minute.
