Realizing that her baby has been taken, she is about to call the police when the two men tell her everything. So-young ends up joining Sang-hyun and Dong-soo on a journey to find new parents for her son. Meanwhile, the police detective Su-jin and her younger colleague Detective Lee are witnessing all of this as it unfolds.
