His memory of his own life having been saved by the sacrifice of his friendí»s precious life when he was nine, makes him suddenly change his destination and follow the woman to Wando on a snowy evening. Hi has a brief affair with the woman, who actually lured him to follow her in order to erase her previous life with a man who desert her and left her pregnant. This moving story of a contingent relationship is permeated with the color of milky white, symbolizing life, and that color reigns over the black color of death.
