Graduating from professional school, Dong-hyuk and Young-shin return with high hopes to enlighten people back home. Dong-hyuk creates the town council and leads the youth living in the rural area; Young-shin establishes a school to counter illiteracy. As the Japanese colonization starts, they too are not free from the persecution of the Japanese police. Dong-hyuk is imprisoned and Youn-shin is bedridden from overworking.
