The young man realized that he's talented in ballet, but, after pursuing the dance form, he barely has contact with his father and he has a hard time supporting himself financially. It is when his desire to become a dancer begins to fade in the face of difficulties that Deok-chool appears and the two men learn life lessons from each other.
