The questions posed by the #MeToo movement remain unresolved. In the movie, young theater actor 'Junho' lives with his colleagues without losing his dreams and passion, even in a coercive environment. As Junho builds up his position as an actor, the sexual scandal of the CEO of the troupe becomes known through the media. Junho believes that he is innocent and leaves for the United States, almost fleeing. First, Junho starts a new life as an assistant in a food truck run by Changnyeong, a troupe senior living in the United States. Contrary to his expectation of easily settling down, the past and subconscious memories he left behind meddle in Junho's current life. The memories of Hyunjin, who was Junho's most reliable colleague in the troupe and a victim of assault, haunt him. Junho must face the fact that he looked the other away. Connivance, disregard, sympathy. The bare faces of the perpetrators exposed by the #MeToo movement is revealed in a complex aspect that is not only limited to those who were directly responsible.
