A five-year-old child, Gil-Son, and his blind older sister, Gami, are out looking for their mother. It's late autumn and the leaves are already blanketed with fall's colors. Gil-Son and Gami meet a Buddhist monk named Seol-Jeong on the road, who invites them to stay at the temple for the winter. Gil-Son soon gets bored and runs a muck in the temple, and is sent to an isolated Buddhist temple with Monk Seol-Jeong, where Gil-Son learns to open his eyes and heart. Since Gami is afraid that she will not be able to recognize her mom when she finds her, Gil-Son decides to teach his sister how to see with her heart.
