Summoned by an unexpected phone call, an elderly woman named Kim Suni spends a night at her old country house with her granddaughter, Eun-joo. Suni recalls how 47 years ago when she was a teenage girl in 1965, she with her widowed mother and sister Sun-ja moved from Seoul to the country for health reasons. The Kims lived in genteel poverty at the mercy of their arrogant and foppish landlord, Ji-tae. Because of her delicate health, the beautiful yet introverted Suni lives an isolated life in the country home, without any friends her age.
One night, Suni glimpses a shadow in the stable; the next day, she discovers a feral boy of about 19 crouching in their yard. The boy’s body temperature is 46 degrees Celsius, his blood type unidentifiable, and he can neither read nor speak. Even though he behaves like a wild beast, Suni’s kindhearted mother adopts him and names him Chul-soo, assuming he’s one of more than 60,000 children orphaned in the Korean War.
At first Suni considers him a nuisance, but eventually has fun taming him according to a dog-training manual. She teaches him how to wait patiently before a meal, how to wear clothes, how to speak, how to write and other human behavior so that he could one day live like a normal man. Chul-soo demonstrates unswerving loyalty and superhuman brawn, thus inspiring the envy of Ji-tae, who lusts after Suni.
As Suni attempts to “civilize” the beast, the two eventually become very close. Suni opens her heart to Chul-soo, and he in turn falls in love with her, the only person to ever show him affection. But their relationship is fraught with difficulties, as Ji-tae begins to cause trouble. Feeling threatened, Chul-soo lets loose his bestial instincts, and in their fear the town villagers turn on him. In order to save the life of the boy who risked his to be by her side, Suni leaves him with a promise: “Wait for me. I’ll come back for you.”
