This tells the story of Ehwa, a Korean girl, as she blossoms into maturity.  The story begins when Ehwa is a young girl and is first learning the differences between boys and girls.  Throughout the story, you see Ehwa develop crushes on boys and begin to see her body in new ways.  Ehwa is so sweet and innocent in some ways, but knowing in others.  While Ehwa is blossoming, new love is also blossoming for Ehwa's mother, a single tavern owner.  Overall, this is a touching story.
