Mi-Kyeong (Kim Ha-Neul) is just released from prison. She is a stranger to the outside world, having no home or family. She decides to take a train and head south. While on the train, Mi-Kyeong notices an advertisement for Hana Island. The ad portrays Hana Island as the last paradise on Earth, with lush trees and beautiful sunshine. Mi-Kyeong then decides to visit Hana Island.
Once Mi-Kyeong arrives on Hana Island she is immediately disappointed. The island is desolate and appears far from any type of paradise. Nonetheless she takes a job in a cafeteria on the island. She then meets Il-ho (Ji Jin-Hee), who works as an elementary school teacher. He has a pure character and makes a favorable impression on Mi-Kyeong.
On the island there is Hwa-Ran (Kim You-Jung) who is a kid always hiding in the mountains. She blames her mom for always bringing strange men to their house. Mi-Kyeong has had a similar past as Hwa-ran and befriends the young child. There is also Ah-ram, who listens to the same songs all day, while recounting her sad memories.
Meanwhile, Mi-kyeong slowly opens her heart to Il-ho. Will Mi-Kyeong discover paradise?
