Dong-hee lives with his father at his pension on a secluded beach in a southern province – though he is not his real father, actually. When he was 14 years old one Spring, he met and fell in love with 27 years old Su-jin, who stayed at this pension to recuperate for a while and in the Fall, returned to her husband. Missing Su-jin, Dong-hee becomes 17 years old all too soon. Then his eyes begin getting dimmed due to a hereditary disease passed down from his real father, and finally he loses his sight at age 18. This film is about the story of Dong-hee, from the moment he first met Su-jin at 14 to the last visible Fall at 17.
