After witnessing a senior doctor about whom he had doubts bring back a patient from cardiac arrest, a young doctor with peasant roots comes to question his whole life when the doctor collapses from the struggle. Feeling that his progress from peasant's son to city doctor was made too smoothly, without a need to struggle or learn about life, and has made him arrogant and lonely, he comes to realize that he has become gradually estranged from his own class and background after he returns to visit his hometown.
