A young woman called Han (played by Choe Eun-hui) marries into a family that prides itself on the vermillion pillar of chastity which was bestowed by the government, but soon after getting married, her young husband dies from an illness, and she becomes a widow. She lives with her husband's younger brother, her father-in-law, and her father-in-law's mother (played by Han Eun-jin) who has lived all her life as a widow faithful to the memory of her husband. One day a young man, Seong-chil (played by Shin Yeong-gyun), accepts her father-in-law's request and joins their household. That year they have a drought, but because of Seong-chil's perseverance and ingenuity, they are able to provide water for their rice paddies. On the day when the long-awaited rain finally comes down, Han and Seong-chil become so ecstatic that they hug each other, finally revealing the feelings that they have for each other. That night they make love and overcome the obstacle of their different social statuses. However, believing the repuation of her family and propriety to be important, Han still tries to live her life supporting the family. When she realizes, however, she is pregnant, she decides to run away with Seong-chil. Her brother-in-law, who is secretly in love with Han, finds out of their plan and tells his grandmother. Han gives birth to the baby, but for the sake of the family, Seong-chil and the baby are forced to leave the family and the town.
