Areum sits typing on her laptop in the corner of a small café, . At the tables around her, other customers enact the various dramas of their lives. A young couple charge each other with serious crimes, an old man tries to rekindle a flame with a younger woman, a narcissistic filmmaker works to put together his next project-all while Areum types. Is she merely writing what she hears? Or is she hearing what's been written? The various stories inside the café unfold as the plants outside grow taller.
