The buyers include the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Britain, Turkey, China, Japan and the Philippines.   

Thirteen-year-old Su-rin (Shin Eun-su) is the new kid in town, having moved to a remote island with her stepfather after losing her mother a year ago. In her loneliness, she meets and befriends Sung-min (Lee Hyo-je), an orphan boy who understands her pain.   One day, Su-rin and Sung-min venture into a cave with a group of other children, where they find a mysterious, glittering egg…

Despite Su-rin’s protests, the boys take the egg outside of the cave, where it gets smashed into pieces. The entire group of children have disappeared leaving Su-rin alone. The local police begin an investigation into the abducted boys and refuse to believe the story of the egg’s discovery. Even more surprising is the appearance of a mysterious grown man in his thirties, who reveals to Su-rin that he is Sung-min (Gang Dong-won)….
