Though she prides herself on her cold, clear-eyed approach to life, an impulsive mistake with a client threatens her livelihood.

Returning to Korea after college, she finds herself in a precarious relationship with the heir to one of the country's biggest conglomerates.

And Wonna, one floor below, is a newlywed trying to have a baby that she and her husband have no idea how they can afford to raise in a brutal economic reality. Together, their stories tell a gripping tale at once unfamiliar and unmistakably universal?their tentative friendships perhaps these women's only saving grace.
