Hee Jin lives in 600 year-old HaHoe village and is learning the village's ancient mask dance that's performed for visitors all summer long. Her mother and grandmother run restaurants in the village and her father and grandfather farm land on the edge of the village. Heejin and her father visit the local market and stop at a paper factory to buy gift wrapping for her grandmother's birthday. There we see how paper is hand-made.
We also follow 9-year-old Ki tae in Seoul, the capital of Korea, through a busy day in school and at his many after-school activities. Ki tae's mother practices golf before she shops in the neighborhood open market and supermarket. We watch Ki tae's aunt and his mother make a special dinner, and follow his father to the factory that he manages.
