So-yeong is a female law student whose tuition is paid by her grandmother. When her grandmother dies, So-yeong has no means of financial support. With a friend Hee-sook, she tricks the wealthy Choi-rim into believing So-yeong is his long-lost daughter. She moves in with Choi-rim, who pays for the finishing of her studies. During her first trial, in which she defends a woman accused of a crime similar to hers, So-yeong speaks passionately for the difficulty of women's lives in contemporary society.[1]
