The film starts with Su Hee, dipping her face into the water thinking how her mother told her that she is all she has in this world. After dressing up, they went to their church where they bumped in with their pastor. She also met Han-na, the daughter of their pastor who’s having a break from studying abroad. After their introduction, the mass started and just like the other kids, Su Hee felt bored and sleepy. Her mother told her to go to the bathroom and wash her face so she could feel lively again.
Though her mother was calling her, Su Hee sat down on the stairs and stayed there for a while. She was pinching her nose while imagining that she was dipping her face in the water when someone patted her shoulder and asked her if she was fine. Su Hee gets shocked and when she opens her eyes, she sees a pink-haired girl. She asks who the girl is, and Han-na laughs because they met earlier. Su Hee didn’t recognize her because when they met earlier, she had black straight hair. And the girl beside her now has pink hair.
Han-na told her that she was wearing a wig earlier and pink was the color of her real hair. Han-na saw that her feet were bleeding and asked her if she was hurt. Su Hee says her shoe is just small for her feet. Han-na asks for her shoe size and she lends her slippers to her and it fits Su Hee. That afternoon, Su Hee went to Han-na’s place to return the slippers. Han-na invited her to come up to her house so she can return Su Hee’s shoes too. Su hee was looking at a beach photo that Han-na took when she went to Montauk.
