Kang-Cheol and Gook-Soo (Kim Beom) leave prison on a furlough. Kang-Cheol has been in prison for 16 years. They have only one month left until their release. They are both given cellphones to take with them. When the phone rings they have to immediately answer where they are and what time it is. Both men are extremely excited to be on the outside. They get on a crowded subway and are pushed by other passengers.
Kang-Cheol ends up in front of a woman. The woman’s name is Ji-Na (Han Ji-Min) and she asks Kang-Cheol to give her some more space. Kang-Cheol can’t move, though. When Ji-Na gets off the subway train she kicks Kang-Cheol and flips him the bird as the train departs. After Kang-Cheol and Gook-Soo get off the train they board a public transit bus.
