The year is 1894, Korea’s Tonghak Uprising whose members are primarily poor farmers. In two farming villages, rumors circulate that the Tonghak army is approaching to punish the two local exploitative families. Counselor Kim is distraught over the report that Chang-soe, who left the village several years ago in the wake of a severe flogging by him, has returned as a Tonghak member. Meanwhile, Il-yang, Adviser Pak’ son, falls in love with Mi-yon, the daughter of Kim, his father’s archrival.
