Things get even worse when, one day, some teenagers beat him up, and later, a woman steals his wallet.

Loh Kiwan files a complaint at a police station where he encounters the female thief. She is Marie (Choi Sung-Eun), a former Korean who has Belgian citizenship but is involved in some bad business. He tags along with her to get his wallet back as it is the only thing left of his mother with him.

Meanwhile, Marie is a dejected woman who has lost all hope after her mother’s death. She is a professional shooter but works for a gambler to pay off her debt. To get Kiwan’s wallet back, she reluctantly makes a deal with her boss, which pushes her into the world of drugs. However, Marie helps Loh Kiwan find a job at a meat factory.

Joong-Ki’s character makes a trusted friend/neighbor at the factory who agrees to help him at the court. He needs a witness who can tell the judge that he is a North Korean and not a fraud Chinese-Korean. Initially, she agrees to help him, but at the court, she lies. Hence, Loh Kiwan fails to get his refugee status. Amid this chaos, he finds himself drawn to Marie. When she makes a scene at her mother’s prayer ceremony, Loh Kiwan steps in to calm her. To get her out of the drug world, he consumes the product and nearly dies. Eventually, she quits for him, and the two find solace in each other’s company.

But their happiness does not last long when Marie’s former boss involves her in a shooting incident. Now, she has to leave the country.
