The plot of the story unfolds against the backdrop of Songju-si, a bustling yet tranquil town where the lives of seven boys intersect in unexpected ways. Each boy, from different walks of life, finds themselves grappling with the myriad challenges that adolescence brings. Family obligations weigh heavily on some, while others wrestle with the scars of loss and the spectre of poverty. Abandonment, violence, and rejection lurk in the shadows, casting a pall over their youthful aspirations.

At the heart of this narrative is Kim Hwan, whose reluctant return to Songju-si sets the stage for the unfolding drama. Estranged from his family and haunted by the legacy of his father, Kim Chang-jun, Hwan is an outsider among his peers. Suspicion and misunderstanding follow him like a shadow, leading to conflicts and discord among the group of six boys he encounters upon his arrival. Yet, amidst the initial friction and tension, seeds of friendship are sown.

Despite their differences, the boys find common ground in their shared experiences and struggles. Through laughter and tears, they forge a bond that transcends the barriers of upbringing and circumstance. Together, they navigate the trials and tribulations of youth, finding solace and strength in each other’s company.
