Two North Korean border guards man a border post along the Dooman River. When the senior soldier leaves his post to relieve himself, the junior soldier heads down to the river. There in the meadow, he discovers a family who offer him their entire life savings in order to bribe their way out of the country. Whether they manage to cross the deadly border remains a question.
