‘A young girl tries to reconcile her warring parents leading to a bittersweet glimmering of maturity’
It is the summer holidays, and a young girl named Ha-na is trying her best to get her family back together after fights start breaking out between her parents. Hana sets out on a mission to go on a trip to the beach with her family as she realises that’s what brought her parents back together the last time they were in conflict. However, Hana is side-tracked from her mission by two new younger friends, sisters Yoo-mi and Yoo-jin. With a new friendship formed, Ha-na finds that she is not the only one with trouble at home, as the two sisters are in danger of moving houses again having just moved to their new surroundings. Hana joins the sisters on a mission to distract potential tenants by playing silly tricks, forming a sisterly bond with the sisters along the way.
