A young film student and her mother run away to the seaside town of Mohang to escape their mounting debt. The young woman begins writing a script for a short film, in order to calm her nerves, and out of her imagination, three women named Anne appear -- each visiting the seaside town of Mohang. The first Anne is a successful film director; the second Anne is a married woman secretly in an affair with a Korean man; the third is a divorcee whose husband left her for a Korean woman.
