    Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts erliegt die jugendliche Sunja, geliebte Tochter eines koreanischen Fischers, dem Charme eines reichen Fremden. Er verspricht ihr die Welt, aber sie lässt sich nicht kaufen; als sie schwanger wird, erfährt sie, dass er verheiratet ist. Wenn das Herz bricht, muss der Kopf die Entscheidungen treffen, und so weist sie den Vater ihres Sohnes zurück und nimmt das Heiratsangebot eines sanften, kränklichen Pfarrers an, der auf dem Weg nach Japan ist. Sunja weiß nicht, dass sie mit dieser Entscheidung eine dramatische Geschichte lostritt, die Folgen hat für alle weiteren Generationen.
