Suspicious cohabitant story of Two Sambe masters in their 80s keeping the vanishing tradition of Andong Hemp cloth(Sambe) and the craftsman who brought a western loom expecting to learn hemp.

In the age of convenience and speed, hemp fiber has become expensive old-fashioned clothes that can only be seen as ‘veterinary’. However, there are still old people in Geumsoli that burlap weaving is all about life. Ms. Woo(87) who is wearing a crown of masters and Ms. Seo(84). Ms. Seo who has a good skill but
without a crown. As traditional heirs, the two have fought fierce pride.

One summer day before hemp harvest, a woman with yellow hair dye enters the lives of two old women. She is a craftsman who wants to create a “Korean wave” with burlap. She even moves to help chores and learn traditional trim of burlap and weaving. The old people turn away from her saying that no one can weave burlap, but she does not leave and spends the summer together in the village.
