A young woman tries to find her place in a society by becoming a politician.
A woman in her 30s named KO Eun-young runs for Jeju governor as the Jeju Green Party’s candidate. Normally, the electorates of Jeju would cast their votes based on who the candidates are and what networks they have, rather than which parties they belong to. Inevitably, immigrant woman KO Eung-young vowing to prevent the construction of a 2nd airport on Jeju Island is a strange new figure. However, her participation in a series of TV discussions leaves a favorable impression on people and quells their doubts. KO Eun-young starts to raise her profile through popular support. As she garners more support, and her chance of winning the election increases, the party members launch an attack of other candidates and turn a blind eye to criticism about their election campaign from within. While the other party members devote all their energy to winning as many votes as possible, KO Eun-young emerges as a star politician equipped with the right qualities and qualifications. KO Eun-young starts to see herself that way too.
